    It's a cigarette holder.

    Thanks for that...it's far too slim to hold cigarettes, they would be squashed - I'm still puzzled???

    what are the interior dimensions?

    I wonder if it isn't a business card holder.

    Dimensions...external 85mm high x 70mm wide (closed). The internal depth is only a couple of mm and would not fit a cigarette as previous donors have suggested. There are what appear to be two retainers on the clasp side which may have had a strap or similar attached??

    Google vintage silver calling card case & look at the images.
    If you can get an image of the hallmarks that would help identify it's origin etc..
