Part of this set is already known by you: when I posted most of my Strömbergshyttan collection there was a picture of this cigarette holder and a square ashtray (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/47226-strmbergshyttan-ashtrays-and-cigarette?in=collection-127) and although it is an unsigned item, Rebessin identified it as the H95 cigarette case. But I recently got the matching ashtray, which made me very happy, as these two were the very first Strömbergshyttan items I ever saw.
I found them at a Swedish online shop when I was living in Miami and I never dared buying it because of the long distance... so when I came back in Spain I visited the website with the intention of buying them... but they had been sold already :( That usually happens, doesn't it?
I have got other complete ashtray and cigarette case sets, all of them bought piece by piece, never as a set, and this is the first set I've got in the same colour, so that's one more reasson for it being so special for me.
