This lovely cigarette case is by British maker Hussey and Dawson, who made vanity items under the brand name Gwenda. The lid is decorated with a countryside image of a river, with a bridge in the background and trees in the foreground. The image is protected by a clear celluloid top layer. The base is ridged to fit the cigarettes, and a sprung internal bar keeps them in position. There is a bevelled interior vanity mirror and “Gwenda, British made” is engraved above the catch.
