Very rare Austrian red and black wood and bronze modernist art deco cigarette box and ashtray. Fabulous desk top box and ashtray with Hagenauer or Wiener Werkstat type bronze plaques to the top. I have never seen another one of these. One shows a pilot smoking with 2 planes behind him. Another shows a polo player on horse and another man smoking and the third one shows a lady smoking with art deco cars in the background. Each bronze panel is framed in Bauhaus framework with zig zags and hatching. There are 2 lids one to cover the cigarette box and the other contains a removable glass ashtray insert with a cigarette rest to the inside of the lid. It is very heavy.
It measures 6.5 inches (16.5cm) long, 2.75 inches (7cm) deep and 4.5 inches high (11.5cm).
Condition is very good.
