I have recently been branching out into collecting Silver compacts. This of course is a Cigarette case or Card Case, personally I think it's a Cigarette case, I think it's beautiful.
The hallmarks are for Birmingham b is for the year 1901, hl is the makers mark for Heinrich Levinger.
The silver case is a lovely textured finish enhanced by two applied stylised trees with Chrysoprase the catch is also Chrysoprase, the detailing is typical Art Nouveau.
Many thanks for looking

    Peasejeaan55, your cigarette case is splendid. The "textured finish" is all hand hammered silver and a favorite of mine.

    Originally, there was an elastic band that ran across and hooked on each side to keep cigarettes from falling out. The elastic rarely survives due to use and age and does not affect the value, IMO. Here is a case that shows the elastic bands, courtesy of Leopard Antiques:

    A really beautiful case.
