"Hunters at Rest," cigarette case in chrome-plated brass, circa 1950s-60s.
The artwork is based on Vasily Perov's famous 1871 painting now in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. Reverse shows two wood grouse (or capercaillie) debating if they have anything to fear from the three hunters. Measures approx. 4" x 3".
In excellent condition. Elastic retainers are missing but
the provisions for them are still intact. The plating has
stood up quite well over the decades, particularly on the
obverse. The underling brass comes out only on the reverse
on the raised points of the points, almost unnoticeable. A
few tiny spots on the interior should probably clear away
with a light polishing with a good polish like Simichrome.
Latch functions perfectly and the fit between the two
halves is also perfect.
