Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A cigarette case or cigarette box is a sturdy, most commonly metal container to store small numbers of cigarettes safely from crushing. In modern times they are also made of plastic. In its simpler form (sometimes called cigarette tin) it is an approximately cigarette-length flat metal box opening flatwise symmetrically on hinges into two halves, each storing one row of cigarettes, often held in place by a spring or an elastic strap. Typical cigarette tins in the United States of the 1920s-1930s stored 50 cigarettes, hence their name "flat fifties" at the time.show more
