These are becoming hard to find, and this one has the important parts working – The music box and the lighter! It is missing the bottom tray – so its not perfect – but working as it does it would still make an awesome addition to your smoking collection!! This is a precision made piece – it is put together with lots of tiny stainless steel screws, like a fine watch, I must say it is pretty impressive.

When the lid is lifted the music plays and it comes from a quality music box as the notes sound pleasant to the ear… It is embossed with 2 chipmunks on the top among the vines and “berries”?

COLOR: Jet black Chrome Lighter and legs. TYPE: Smoking set, musical. CIRCA: Likely around the 1940’s give or take 10 years. MATERIAL: Bakelite case, metal legs and lighter, music works. CONDITION: This comes to you in overall excellent condition. The only mentionables are that the interior push-plate that fits into the bottom of the cigarette case is missing. The other thing is that a tiny piece of the piano case (above and to the left of the cigarette case) has broken off – I almost did not notice it at first – it is pictured – but unless you are looking for it you wouldn’t notice it.
