My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. I see the photo of the closed case here and that helps. I would like to see a picture of any marks you might find - look absolutely everywhere. The French marked things in more than one place. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add more pictures.
The photo is blurry, but I can work with it. The logo on the left is the maker and should be the Dupont logo (I am unable to see it to verify). This is the matching cigarette case to the lighter made in the Paris Line by ST Dupont. These were made from 1940 to the early 1950's. The lighter has a value of $150 to $180. This case, which is gold tone and not solid gold if made by Dupont, has a value of $300.00. These were made to be an affordable option to the solid gold cases made by Boucheron, Cartier, and Tiffany during the same time period.
