"It looks to be a ceramic Christmas tree intended to hold bottles of some kind. Possibly a Christmas display at a package store. Or maybe hotdogs, but they aren't as "Christmassy" as booze."

Cigarette paper tins wanted

I'm a active collector of cigarette paper tins. You folks probably remember the Steel case that E-Z Wider put out in the 1960's and 1970's, but they have been produced for many years. This is certainly a un-researched area of collecting. I'm constantly running into previously unknown holders, yet some I have located only in pictures. My search will continue, and any help will be appreciated.Here's a recent discovery made in Germany...…See More

James Archibald replied to Katie Bentley's discussion Pre-Nazi Swastika Wishbone Lucky Plates, teacups.... what are these?!!?!? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Many early U.S. tokens were made featuring the swastika, which denoted "luck".  At the four openings, other symbols were used like a wishbone and clover. It took something as bad as the Nazi Party to change our viewpoint."

Camel (brand) cigarette paper holder wanted.

I just saw this online, but the sale was long over. This tin looks to be of fairly recent vintage, and was put out by Camel cigarettes. I don't think Camel ever produced cigarette papers, but I could be wrong. If anyone has a lead to getting out of these tin's, please let me know, thanks!See More
