This lovely cigarette case is by British maker Hussey and Dawson, who made vanity items with the Gwenda brand name. The lid is decorated with an image of a kingfisher, sitting above some bulrushes by a river. The image is printed on clear celluloid, with a background of blue foil, made to resemble butterfly wings. The foil highlights the river and the bird, and catches the light beautifully. The base is ridged to fit the cigarettes, and internally, there is a sprung bar to keep them in position. “Gwenda, British made” is printed above the lid clasp. Although it has been well used, this is still a beautiful cigarette case in good working order, and has plenty of life left in it.
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.
