vintage cigarette cases.

ever noticed how glamorous things were back in the days. look at old pictures or think back to your parents, grandparents or great-grandparents and you'll probably see them dressed up with make-up just to go to the supermarket. although cigarettes are seen as un-lady like today, once upon a time, the habit wasn't frowned upon. ladies kept their smokes in pretty cases like these:

Such a sublime assortment you have! Nice details. I ne'er smoke-cured either, however I recently stumbled on a fantastically beaded case, of a way later vintage than yours ar, and was tempted to shop for it.
