Antique Asian Cigarette Dispenser Box 1910's Japanese Bird Wooden Cigarette Case Extremely Rare
This is a rare and wonderfully unique Asian hand painted antique 1910's Japanese bird wooden cigarette case or dispenser.
The box and Tancho crane bird are in very good condition, but the mechanicals do need some tweaking. With the push of the button the lid opens and the bird reaches in the box to lift out a cigarette, but he doesn't open his beak as he should or rise up out of the box.
The piece has some Japanese symbols on the interior metal workings. A very unique conversation piece to add to your collection.
The box (not including the crane) is approximately 5 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches by 2 3/4 inches in height. Total approximate height with the crane is 6 inches. Total weight not including packaging is 12.1 ounces.
Due to the weight and value of this item it will be shipped Priority mail with insurance. As with all our items it will be very well packaged for it's safe arrival.
