An unusual and very rare combined cigarette and lighter case. Has a brushed steel map of the British Zone of Germany attached to the front. The British Zone was in operation from 1945-1949 so we can precisely date the piece within this timeframe. This was probably purchased by a British soldier when stationed there and brought home as a momento. Manufactured in brass with a cream composite covering. Pressing the two catches to the top of the case opens the cigarette compartment and the slim brass button to the right of the case operates the lighter - appears to be in working order as it produces a spark with operated - assume that it just needs fuel. The length of the case is 5 inches and the height is 3.5 inches.
