A Striking Art Deco Cigarette Box, Inscribed & Dated 1931


Origin: English
Period: Art Deco
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1930
Height: 2 inches
Width: 5 inches
Depth: 3 inches

Of a dramatic all-over sunburst geometric design, the painted wooden box is coloured in yellow, amber and black to provide a very typical and appealing appearance. Opening the box we find the lid is inscribed in ink “From Edith, January 1931’.

There is some general wear and crackle to the paintwork but the box is structurally very sound.

A boldly arresting cigarette box and one that draws the eye to wherever it sits.
