Radium Brand Cigars (ca. 1920)

 

A metal container, minus the contents, for 50 Radium Cigars.  If I interpret the label correctly, the cigars were produced by the Polus tobacco company in Balerna Switzerland.  The box reads as follows:

50 Virginia Radium Export.  Fabbriche Riunite  Polus E Industria Ticinese Tabacchi.  Balerna Ticino.

 

 

Size:  8 1/2"  x  5 1/4"  x  2"
