Extremely rare cigarette case with Adolf Hitler and Mussolini Vincere
For your viewing is an Interesting cigarette case celebrating German and Italian unity. The plate shows Mussolini and Hitler above an eagle holding both the fasces and swaz.
Across the top is a banne reading VINCERE which translates to ‘conquer’ or ‘victory’. The outside around the central plaque is painted to simulate tortoise shell. The inside is a green/aqua color.
Condition is just about perfect with the bands inside in good condition as well as the spring clip. This is an uncommon item and while this one has a few nicks in the paint it is in far better condition then any other I have seen.
The delicate paint is usually quite chewed up so this is a terrific example of world history.
