ARTIFACT: This is a great wooden cigarette case from the Japanese Occupation Period. The case opens by sliding one end open, but if the "secret lever" on the opposite end is not released at the same time, the case does not open all the way and appears to be empty. The top of the case shows a B-29 Bomber flying around Mount Fuji, and on the reverse is a rose. Both images are bordered by a small checkerboard pattern.

VINTAGE: Circa late 1940s.

SIZE: Approximately 3-11/16" in height and 4-1/8" in width and 13/16" in thickness.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Wood with painted details.



ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Air Force collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay VBEX11 LAAEX4/11 SAAEX01/17

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The box is in wonderful condition with two small pieces of veneer missing from the back.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
