This is fun, neat and full of history! This is a beautiful Art Deco German silver pocket cigarette case or card case. Fully hallmarked with the Martin Mayer GmbH, Mainz hallmark using in the mark the "Wheel of Maguntia" with a star on top. The numeral "27" in the photo is an "MM" internal indication for their product-supplier. (800/1000 being the finest silver),

   Founded in 1888, the firm never made plated products, and this is very rare and beautiful German jugendstil Art Deco silver case, featuring outstanding simple details with lines common to the era. In wonderful estate condition for a 1920's piece, with no damages or repairs, dings, dents or monograms, it does have minor superficial wear, which is hardly anything except needing an excellent polishing! It does have the original patina!

   The closure works perfectly, the original elastic is there and holds perfect. The inside of the case is gold washed and in very nice condition as well. This case measures approximately 3 1/3" in length, 3" in height and 1/4" in depth.

   Exceptionally well taken care and beautiful German history!    $189.00
