Being on the look out for a new cigarette holder to give my brother for a birthday present next week I spent a lot of time surfing the web this weekend looking for something vintage. I didn't find anything close to what I was looking for but I did find a cool blog post that shares some pics of vintage cigarette cases. The name of the blog I found the pics on is CurtainsInMyTree.blogspot.com. Here's a small bit from it.
Vintage Cigarette Cases Here is another group of items I always picked up at Estate Sales. Not going looking for cigarette cases but seemed no one else was interested in them at the time.They use to be very chic to carry in your bag. They always reminded me of the Carry All bags I collected. Also I love dainty things ladies carried in their bags back in the 1940-1950's. Seemed all ladies smoked.I ask my Grandmother once why she started smoking? She said my Grandfather suggested she smoke to relax her, so they set out in the back yard in the evenings and had a smoke together. She said she started smoking at age 35 and she died at age 89 of emphysema . She had quit smoking about 5 years before she died. I never did smoke more than 3 cigarettes in my life. I had to try it when I was in my late 20's (.I didn't inhale) LOL Here is a few cigarette cases I have collected and had on a silver dresser tray on my dresser in my quest bedroom.

As nice as those are I ended up purchasing one from our inventory for him. After a lot of searching across the Internet I have to admit I am quite partial to our line of cigarette holders.
