How to identify an antique silver cigarette case:

  • Check the date information: century silver smiths always inscribe the date of fabrication on their cigarette cases. Look out for it before you buy one.
  • Use Magnets: Yes, magnets can be used to know if a case is made of pure silver or mere mixtures of metal. Silver do not attract magnet, so, if the case does, it isn’t vintage.
  • Check for Stamp or branding: old silver smiths also accompany their works with their stamp to show its origin.
