VERY RARE OLD DEMLEY MECHANICAL CIGARETTE CASE MADE OF BAKELITE WITH A CHERRY BURL WOOD LOOK. This is your chance to own an extremely rare early bakelite Demley mechanical cigarette case with a unique elevator mechanism that raises the cigarettes up for easy access. It is likely from the very early years of bakelite items, and is colored to look like cherry burlwood. Since it is from prefilter days, it will accept a cigarette up to about 2.75 inches maximum (7 cm). The case is about 3.25 inches square, and about 3.5 inches high, all approximate measurements. The case holds 25 cigarettes, and has some floral decorations on the top of the bed, visible with the lid open in the pictures above. The pictures are a vital part of my description. Some years ago a liquid was spilled on the case, resulting in the staining on the bottom visible in the pictures above. I have lightly cleaned it, but will leave it to your discretion as to what further care it may need. I have only seen a few other Demley presentation cases of this type in 50 years.
