The musical cigarette dispenser that C. Wilkins describes in 030201
MMD is a type of music box known as a "mosque." Here are some URL's
showing three mosque designs:
Reuge used to make them and perhaps still does. Mosques can hold
after-dinner liqueurs, cigars, cigarettes, perfumes, etc. They
occasionally turn up on eBay, but there the term "mosque" is seldom
used -- which is a shame, because it would be such a convenient search
term. Instead you have to use other possible term combinations that
will bring up exactly the kind of music(al) box you are interested in.
I realize this isn't much help, but since nobody else posted a response
to the question, I thought I would send this.
