Dresden Carl Thieme Cigarette Set, COMPLETE tray, cigarette receptacle, 4 ashtrays and matchbox holder, very hard to find and in excellent condition! Beautifully decorated! Receptacle to hold 19 cigarettes with each one being hand painted. Both indented wells for the ashtrays and the matchbox holder are hand painted. Handpainted Gold CrissCross Design with Rosebuds inside. This appears to have been displayed only and not used. Listed in the Dresden Book by Harran page 123. They are listing it as Circa 1950’s, but I believe it will be earlier from 1910 – 1940.
Dimensions 9″ x 6″ oval
