Play a Funeral Tune: Vintage Musical Cigarette Box

Vintage Musical Coffin Cigarette Dispenser via Pandora's ParlorDarlings, who wouldn’t adore this little vintage coffin-shaped musical cigarette box?

  1. I once live next door to a man who had one of those! Thanks for the weird memories!

  2. Nothing sounds creepier than a music box or an organ…

  3. I like this – I have a vintage cigarette box here that, when you open it, there are three “sleeves” the open up at different angles. Very classy!

  4. I have one of these sitting on my desk right now.
