Rubber Case for Cigarettes (Jul, 1939)

Rubber Case for Cigarettes
Comfortable to carry, a new cigarette case of rubber is declared sufficiently flexible to conform to the body, but stiff enough to protect from damage the ten cigarettes it holds. To remove one, the elastic cover flap is drawn back as shown at right. When released, it closes of its own accord.


That’s actually a kind of cool idea.


Cigarettes that light themselves without matches have been made before, but this novelty in a new form has just been introduced by a San Francisco manufacturer. Ten cigarettes are packed in a box, each provided with a tip of yellow composition. Scratched like a safety match, upon a special surface of the box, a flare results that lights the cigarette.

A strong wind does not interfere with the lighting, according to the maker. He claims his composition is free of objectionable taste in burning, overcoming the principal problem of other inventors who have sought self-lighting cigarettes.

Winston’s FILTER-BLEND up front is packed for pleasure!

Winston has both a modern filter and Filter-Blend—choice, golden tobaccos specially selected and specially processed for filter smoking. That’s why, more folks find it fun to smoke Winston than any other filter cigarette. How about you? Next time you buy cigarettes, ask for Winston.

WINSTON TASTES GOOD like a cigarette should!

Ash Trays From Beer Cans (Jun, 1950)

Ash Trays From Beer Cans
When he discovered that his squadron’s cargo-passenger plane had been stripped of ash trays by souvenir-hunting travelers, Chief Dan Baffari of the Navy went to work with a hammer on several beer cans. He came up with a big stack of attractive ash trays that cost only a few cents apiece. The trays have metal hooks which clamp over the ribs of the passenger compartment, holding them conveniently and securely in place. The tops have flared cigarette rests and the trays are painted with shiny fire-resistant paint.

Hat Is Latest in Cigarette Cases (Apr, 1932)

Hat Is Latest in Cigarette Cases

AN “ammunition” hat designed with tuck in which are inserted twenty cigarettes, is proclaimed by stylists as the latest fad for co-eds. Wearing this hat, shown in the photo at right, the co-ed needs no longer go through the awkward motions of searching through a hand bag for her fags. All she has to do is to reach up and pluck one from her hat.

The cigarettes are arranged to appear like ornaments on the hat. The slots which hold the fags are made extremely rigid so as to prevent breaking.

Chesterfield – They Satisfy (Nov, 1936)

Because when I want to pay tribute to something the first thing that comes to mind is using it as an ashtray.

A Tribute to Football
by Grantland Rice
Blocking backs and interference -Fifty thousand wild adherents –
Tackle thrusts and headlong clashes, Two yard bucks and dizzy dashes,
Head and shoulder, heart and soul, Till you fall across the goal.
And another all-star eleven – They Satisfy

Whole Cigarette Factory Contained in Single Tobacco Can

ADD to your list of incredibilities this tobacco can cigarette factory, which nevertheless is an established fact, as our photo proves, though unlikely to cause stirrings of uneasiness in the council chambers of the country’s cigarette manufacturers. The invention is the creation of Dr. Edward P. Delevante, who has built a cigarette roller right into the bottom of the tobacco can. At the twist of a lever the cigarette pops out ready for use, with matches handy for lighting on the side of the tin.
