Vintage Japanese Cigarette Case - Gold Sky Dragon

SKU: nwf601

Please understand that this item is not eligible for any promo discount at checkout. 


This is a vintage cigarette case from Japan's Taisho Period (1920s) featuring a skillfully hand-carved gold sky dragon emerging from the wind and clouds.


The gold used for the dragon does not appear to be 24K, so it is likely an alloy or gold plated, based on the fading of it in some areas.  The case itself appears to be silver, but we're not certain of that.  In any case, it's a very rare and cool vintage item that would no doubt impress!


It's quite old and it definitely shows signs of use, but the wear does give it some character.  However, if you're looking for a mint or near mint case, you should avoid purchasing this item.  That being said, it can still be used daily as intended; opens and snaps shut nicely!  The photos show everything, so please see and judge from the images provided. 


Beyond its captivating appearance, this piece adds a touch of distinction and practicality to your everyday endeavors.  Why not enhance your lifestyle with an affordable treasure, a piece of Japanese craftsmanship that effortlessly blends beauty and functionality! 


Dimensions:  The case measures approximately 10cm in width, 8cm in height, and has a thickness of 9mm.  It weighs approximately 76 grams.
