Frank Lloyd Wright owned this brass musical cigarette box with a green enameled top. Made of machined brass with holders for individual cigarettes, the box plays a waltz, Tales from the Vienna Woods by Johann Strauss, Jr., when opened. A photograph dating from the 1920s shows Wright holding a cigarette. The cigarette case is believed to date to this period of Wright’s life.
