Perhaps then the Jasper one was marketed and sold in 1920 or so by that means LUT). I saw a replica of it on an Antique Show and that is how they dated it! Very interesting. :)

Atten:  Alexandre64 and other interested Faberge cigarette case enthusiasts:     To further enhance my reply (of June 09, 2008 on this topic on this thread),  I note that there is for sale via bid today (July 19, 2008) on EBay, the following book, specifically on Faberge cigarette cases: "The Faberge Case, From the Private Collection of John Traina, with an introduction by Archduke Geza von Habsburg and an Essay by Danielle Steel."  It is a hardcover book, 1998, 192 pages.  Unfortunately the publisher is not given.  It is presently at US$40. with one bidder and one day remaining.  The EBay number is 110270396820.  For information on Mr. Traina, refer to my reply of June 09, 2008 on this present thread.    AP.
mr Traina was married to Danielle Steele.

Thank you, ashdean!  Your information led me to "read-up" a bit on Danielle Steel.  Interesting and somewhat tragic background.      AP.

The Alexander II cigarette case absolutely beautiful! Is this in a private collection or State Collection?

Hi Mari,

Provenance of the cases are documented in the descriptions where known in "The Faberge case". It is a nice book with a wide range of cigarette cases (enamelled, gold, silver, steel nephrite, birch, etc.)

Thank you! rgt9w

Alexandre64:
Is an Auction House involved? I would like to keep up with the Auction. I wonder how much the case is estimated to bring?
