Marcovitch "Black & White Cigarettes" Art Deco vintage tin (c.1930s-50s) (SOLD)
A c.1930s-50s vintage Marcovitch of Piccadilly "Black & White Cigarettes" tin (empty), which originally contained 25 cigarettes, measuring approximately 11 x 7.7 x 1.6cm (4.35 x 3.05 x 0.65in), in aluminium with hinged lid printed in an Art Deco style in black and cream / off-white (probably darkened with age) to the exterior; the printing to the inside lid describes how Mr Marcovitch began producing cigarettes "over 100 years ago ... for the manly dandies of his day".
There is considerable age wear to the exterior including numerous scratches, some marks and a couple of patches of corrosion together with the probable discoloration already mentioned; there is some lesser wear and slight marking to the interior, and there are some indentations, especially to the base.
