Sorry, this item has sold.

This Melissa cigarette case is decorated with a a pair of swans and their signets on a reflective blue lid. The gold tone case has an engine turned cross hatch design on the base. The case dates to the 1960s or early 1970s, and opens by pushing in the catch at the front. The cigarette retaining bar has “Melissa made in England” engraved on it. This case is very slightly larger than a business card, so could also be used to hold a few business cards.

The last photo shows the cigarette case with vintage players no.6 cigarettes (for illustration only, not included). The cigarettes are 2 5/8” or 6.7cm.

I also have a powder compact that matches this cigarette case in a separate listing.


🔸This Melissa cigarette case is in excellent used vintage condition.
🔸The hinge and catch work as they should.
🔸The gold tone is bright and shiny with no scuffs to mention.

Dimensions 3 1/2” x 2 5/8” x 3/4”
