Wonderful Chinese export cigarette box with central round jadeite embellishment. This 1920s box features hand chased designs of flowers and four Chinese symbols one to each corner. It is lined on the inside with wood.
During the art deco era every coffee table would have one of these boxes filled with cigarettes which would be offered to guests.
Today they are highly sought after by collectors of both tobacciana and Chinese export items. They are often used as decor pieces. Place on a pile of books on a coffee table or book shelf. Lovely addition to an Asian, Hollywood Regency or glam decor aesthetic.
Some natural patina consistent with age. One of the hinges in the back is a little loose but can be easily tightened with a pair or small nosed pliers.
4.75" x 3.6" x 1.5"

USPS provides these time frames as guidelines and does not offer any guarantees. My personal experience is that they are very reliable.
Yes, in most cases you will only pay shipping for the heaviest/largest item and additional items will be shipped free. When ordering multiple items please contact me so I can make an adjustment to the shipping charges. This can also be done in the form of a refund if you order before contacting me.
In most cases they are not. I negotiate each price and pass any savings on to the buyer when I list the item. However I have no problem with you asking me. I figure if I can negotiate when I purchase an item then I should not mind when someone negotiates with me. FYI I am usually more open to negotiations when the order is for multiple items.
