SILVER SMOKING ACCESSORIES

The smoking of tobacco was introduced into Britain from France in the 16th century. Cigars were smoked in the 18th century, although silver smoking related pieces from this period are rare. During the 1850’s cigarettes became popular, with silver smoking paraphernalia coming into vogue, particularly cigar boxes, cigarette boxes, and lighters, sometimes in the most ingenious of forms.
