Ronson Silver Plated Cigarette Box… Yes, Modern Audrey Would!

It’s not what you think!

I was so excited when a long time family friend offered Audrey Would! this silver plated Art Deco cigarette box. I love featuring unique pieces like, and of course, giving you first dibs to find them in the boutique!

Ronson 1940s Cigarette Box

This tabletop cigarette box was made by Ronson in the 1940s, and was a popular item for coffee tables back in the day when smoking and glam went hand-in-hand. We know things have changed a lot since then, so it was great fun envisioning a new use for this vintage piece in today’s setting. Here is just one way I think our Modern Audrey would put this Regency piece to use.
