The cigarette case also includes a compartment for a match striker.
Fabergé offered variations of a cigarette case model such as this example, using different materials, surface treatments, and ornamentation. Accommodating individual clients’ wishes, the firm would also add a family insignia or additional decoration. The finely ridged surface demonstrates the superb handling of the precious metal by August Hollming, a Finnish master who worked for Fabergé in Saint Petersburg.
