Art Nouveau Embossed  French Pewter Cigarette Box - image 1 of 14

This wonderful repousse embossed pewter cigarette box dates to the Art Nouveau period. It measures 5 7/8 inches long, by 4 ¼ inches wide, by 2 ½ inches tall. It has a wood lined interior. The pewter exterior is nicely decorated with pears and vines along with classic art nouveau styling. A continuous hinge runs along the back edge and is totally functional. The pewter has the wonderful glowing gray patina that is desired by collectors. It is in excellent condition. About 1/4 inch of the back left corner of the lid has bent slightly. This is shown in several photos so that you will see how minimal the damage is. In all regards this is a nice piece of Art Nouveau that displays well and is totally useable. Imagine it on your end table or dresser. It would make a very classy stash box.
