50 Cigarette plastic round
In the 1950s and 1960ís smoking was considered glamourous. Special 50 cigarette containers were marketed as gifts and these were often on a round plastic container as in the photograph. The container would have been sealed in plastic and had a Christmas message on the plastic for example. At that time of course, plastic was a new material and exciting in its own right.
