This vintage cigarette case with working lighter is in excellent condition. Ronson cigarette cases and tabletop lighters are extremely collectible amongst mid-century design lovers and tobacciana collectors. This version, bearing several patent numbers, including pat 19023 and 98991, dates sometime between the mid-1930s through the late 1950s. It has a Deco pinstripe design on the front, and features circular brush patterns on the inside. The case is monogrammed with the initials JAB. The cigarette case holds ten cigarettes, and the lighter is assumed to be in working condition with a wick, but will need fluid and possibly a new flint. The case measures 3 3/8" by 4" and is, again, in excellent condition with only a few light surface scratches. Don Draper, anyone? John A. Braper?
