Vintage, probably antique, touristware Jerusalem cigarette case or box with inlaid marquetry detailing what is probably a goatherd and two goats. The obverse bears the name Jerusalem. The top of the box pulls upwards to reveal a compartment for cigarettes (or nowadays, cards, small photographs, crayons or small pencils etc).
Although the box or case is believed to be made from olive wood, the top opening is made of slightly different coloured (and possible even different) wood, and it may be that this is a later replacement. There is a thin hairline crack to the side with the marquetry goatherd, and there is slight damage to the obverse side as well (see photographs). Other than this, the box is structurally sound.
The case measures approximately 3.125in by just over 3.25in and about 0.625in at its deepest. Believed to date from the earlier part of last century.
