This Box was designed for a Lady's Dressing Table accessory...........and would have held pride of place on any Lady of Quality's Dressing Table in the 1930's.

Smoking was 'de-rigueur' in the Art Deco Era.........so it is not surprising that this box was made with a matching ashtray.

The ashtray is again made of beautifully thick cut vintage french crystal....in the bacarrat style..........it has a diamond criss-cross cut on sides and base to match the box.

The ashtray is rimmed with a brass rim with cigarette holder.

We have seen this type of box, on its own, for sale online for over $450......but the ones we have seen do not have the GLORIOUS sunburst patterned cut on the base.
This makes this box a....'cut above the rest' ......if you will excuse the 'pun' ! LOL
The ashtray is really a BONUS !!

The box has a great weight......it exudes QUALITY !!

Both are in FANTASTIC CONDITION for their age !!!
