This beautiful Swiss silver cigarette case is a wonderful example of the Art Nouveau style, done over a century ago. The case has a painted enamel plaque, depicting a nude woman with a pastoral background with lovely pink roses and coupling birds, in very good condition. The enamel was done in exceptional detail, shown by the woman’s necklace and bracelet, which gold and silver leaf was used for added realism. The hinged case itself is slightly convex, giving it an extra sophistication of look and comfort of feel. The inside has two elastic straps to secure its contents, and is marked “Y” and “935” (meaning 935/1000 fine). The case is approx. 4” long, 3 ¼“ wide. This case, though made originally for cigarettes, could be used by smokers and non-smokers alike for a variety of things, business cards, money, etc.
