In days past, people smoked with class. I know, it sounds absurd to use the word ‘class’ in conjunction with such a disgusting, nihlistic habit. But countless movies, television shows, and advertisments of the pre-1970 era depict the art of smoking: hands elegantly poised, men courteously lighting their female companion’s cigarette, and of course, all the related accessories. Lighters of both pocket, purse, and tabletop variety; long enameled holders a-la Breakfast at Tiffany’s; fancy boxes for your coffee table; and even ornamental cases to carry your smokes in – because using the original carton was ever so tacky. This example is an enameled copper ladies’ case, depicting the bust of Nefertiti, c.1960.
