This smart vintage French cigarette holder called 'Fumoto Dali Dore Depose' comes in its original plastic wrapper, box, and with the instructions. This clever device was meant to hold an entire cigarette in the 1940s (cigarette sizes may vary today).
The plastic mouthpiece is on a spring and twists securely onto the perforated metal tube. The design was intended to capture any potential ashes and therefore avoid the risk of fire. (Disclaimer: no guarantee if this actually works!)
With the original plastic wrap, box, and instruction sheet (in French)
In good condition: the instruction paper has yellow toning and the brush cleaner is missing.
Box size: 5-1/4” x 1-1/4”
Cigarette holder: 5-1/2” x 1/2”
A rough translation of the instructions:
With Fumoto, do not burn or stain your clothes, sheets, drapes, carpets, etc.
