We are delighted to have this unique fully hallmarked Persian cigarette case as one of our 'finds'. Allegorical Persian solid silver cigarette cases are extremely rare. This piece is superb. As you can see the scene shows a woman offering a weary man something to drink. The engraving is very fine & the silversmith has rendered the clothes in such a way that they feel like they have the texture of garments. He has also captured the characters of the people...............she is eager to help & strong, whilst the man is tired & weak. The area appears not to be dessert but quite lush with hills, vegetation & trees. Two charming ibis just to the left of the woman. We have researched Persian literature & so far we have not been able to ascertain which legend, allegory or proverb this scene depicts. If you do know we would be pleased to here from you.
Push the thumb catch to open the case & the spring loaded catch ensures that the case glides open. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. An elastic strap is still in place. This large case easily has enough room for the largest business cards, credit cards & cigarettes too. As image four shows the case is fully hallmarked silver. The base is decorated with the most beautiful engraving.
A very impressive gift.
This solid silver cigarette / card case measures just over 4 1/2" X 3 1/4" & weighs 159 grams.
