Own a piece of Edwardian elegance with this authentic vintage solid silver cigarette case, hallmarked by the renowned William Hair Haseler, W H Haseler Ltd. Crafted in Birmingham in 1901, this piece embodies the era’s splendor with its finely detailed acanthus leaf engraving. The prominent cartouche, dated June 27th 1903, is dedicated from competitors to J Percy Mountjoy, the Honorary Secretary.

The case exhibits slight surface scratches and minute dings, commensurate with its age. Although mostly flush, the case can occasionally be opened without pressing the button. It measures 8.7cm in length, 6.1cm in width, and 1.6cm in depth, weighing a sturdy 76.25 grams. Note: The cigarettes and cigars displayed in the photos are not included. As a preloved item, expect signs of wear.

Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas, or any special occasion, this stunning case is the perfect gift for antique enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

Though it carries a rich history, the case remains in admirable condition. It bears some light surface scratches and a few minuscule ‘dings’ – typical signs indicating its vintage nature. Importantly, the case closes flush. However, prospective buyers should note that occasionally the case may open without using the button. Its compact dimensions, 8.7 cm in length, 6.1 cm in width, and 1.6 cm in depth, are complemented by its substantial weight of 76.25 grams.

For context, while photographs showcase UK brand cigarettes and cigars smaller than the typical king-size, measuring 6.9 CM, these are merely for display. They are not included in the purchase. This treasured piece, like all preloved items, does come with some signs of wear. Yet, its charm remains undiminished.

Whether you’re looking to add a statement piece to your collection or gift a loved one a touch of history for a birthday, Christmas, or any special occasion, this Edwardian cigarette case promises to be a gift that stands the test of time.
