Fostoria American Small Cigarette & Cover - Amber

Small Cigarette and Cover – Amber

Smoking Accessories

Item Number:  #CC-06A
Dimensions:  5½” x 2½” x 2″
Production Dates:  1925-1926

When used in the colored Boudoir Sets, this item was known as the Small Cigarette and Cover.  However, when this same box was produced in clear crystal, it was known as the “Jewel Box and Cover”.  During its very limited life as a Small Cigarette and Cover, it was produced in the colors of Amber, Blue, and Canary.

The Small Cigarette and Cover is approximately 5½” in length.  It consists of two separate pieces, the box and the cover.  This item was one of several pieces included in the colored Boudoir Sets of 1925-1926.

The colored Boudoir Set consisted of the following items:

  • 1 Bon Bon
  • 1 Large Cigarette & Cover
  • 1 Small Cigarette & Cover
  • 1 Confection & Cover
  • 1 Small Cologne
  • 1 Square Puff and Cover
  • 1 Pin Tray
  • 1 Comb & Brush Tray

It’s important to note that Fostoria Glass also produced the Hair Receiver in the colors of Amber, Blue, and Canary.  While the Hair Receiver would certainly qualify as a piece that was often kept in the bedroom or boudoir; it simply was not listed as being part of the colored Boudoir Set that debuted in 1925.  The Boudoir Sets of the 1920’s were offered with a variety of items.  The items within the set changed, based on the year the set was offered, and if it was offered in clear crystal or color.
