White mesh cigarette case with gold metal and white enamel trim, levered lid, larger size, Glomesh brand, Australia, circa 1970s

Sorry, this item has sold.


This cigarette case is an interesting piece of history.
The case is a rigid box that was designed to accommodate a packet of cigarettes.
The exterior material is white mesh and the lining is a combination of white PVC, gold metal, and stain resistant gold fabric.
The closing mechanism is really interesting. The back of the case levers over the front and closes snugly over the front - hopefully the photos make this clear.
The edge of the closure is trimmed with gold metal and white enamel with the letter "G" for Glomesh in gold.
Glomesh is an Australian company and this product would have been made in Australia.
I'm pretty sure that cigarettes today come in larger packets, but the case could be used as a mini makeup case or for rollies etc.

The case is 4 inches / 10 cm tall, 3.1 inches / 8 cm wide, and 1.1 inch / 2.75 cm deep.

The case is circa 1970s.

There are minor scratches on the enamel and minor wear on the tops of some of the tiles.
The case shuts perfectly and the inside is clean and stain free.

If you purchase more than one item, I will combine postage wherever possible and will refund any over payment of postage.

Shipping from Australia

Items will be shipped within 3 business days of payment, usually sooner.
I use a combination of Australia Post and a courier service (within Australia only).
When more than one item is purchased, I combine postage and refund any shipping overages to the buyer.
The postage times of international air mail can be unpredictable and goods may take longer than expected to arrive. This is something over which I have no control.
Custom fees vary from country to country and payment of them is the responsibility of the buyer.


If a buyer wants to seek a refund, the buyer must get in touch with me within 7 days of receiving the item.
I will refund if you change your mind about the item, but I will only refund the cost of the item, not the postage cost. The item must be returned to me for the refund and the buyer must pay the cost of the return postage.
If an item is damaged in transit, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost paid by the buyer. I will require proof of damage - an emailed photo may be enough proof or I may ask for the item to be returned to me. If the latter, I will pay for the return postage cost after I have received the goods.
If an item is lost in transit, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost.
If an item with a tracking number tracks as having been delivered and you didn't receive it, you must take this up with the carrier. I am unable to do this on your behalf.
I will refund if the item is not as described - that is, if I have unintentionally misrepresented the item or have missed damage to an item that makes a material difference to its description or value. The buyer may have to return the item to me. In that case I will pay for the cost of postage both ways as well as the cost of the item. If the buyer would like to keep the item at a discounted price, I will negotiate a price with the buyer.


Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know before deciding to purchase.
