A throwback from 1941 for my antique lovers…a rose gold cigarette case by Verdura! I do not smoke but I could see using this to carry credit cards and a lipstick for a nice evening out.

The “Shell” case was designed by Verdura as a part of a series of five cigarette cases for Cole Porter. This one commemorated the release of Columbia Pictures’ You’ll Never Get Rich, starring Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth.
