RARE Vintage British CIGARETTE Art Deco Vending Machine For Imperial Tobacco Co
Vintage British CIGARETTE Tobacco Art Deco Vending Machine. Coin Operated vending machine, relatively compact version. Dimensions: 55 (height) x 22.5 (width) x 9 (depth). Takes 4 different kinds of cigarettes, you can change the kinds by putting in new paper cigarette packaging. 4 Very strong metal hoops on the back side for hanging, therefore the original unit should be a wall model, probably used in a shop or a bar. It is not very bulky, if hanging on the wall, measuring the widest point (where the hooks are sticking out), its only 9 inches thick. Currently it stands on a custom made wood block for balance. The height of 55 is measured from the wood block to the top of the vending machine. So the unit itself will be a few inches short than 55. Tag on the back reads This machine is the property of The Imperial Tobacco Co of Great Britain and Ireland. Imperial Brands plc, formerly Imperial Tobacco Group plc, is a British multinational tobacco company headquartered in Bristol, United Kingdom.
It is the worlds fourth-largest international cigarette company measured by market share after Philip Morris International, British American Tobacco, and Japan Tobacco, and the world's largest producer of cigars, fine-cut tobacco, and tobacco papers. Also has specific service vendor information inside, which is a place in London. The chrome on the surface is in good shape, some light scratches.
Could also use some cleaning, I just briefly wiped it down. No keys but currently the doors are open so you can inspect the mechanism. It powers up and the red Cigarette sign above the machine lights up. It seems one of the red bulb thats on the left side is out but the right one functions. I did not test the mechanism or the coin receptor.
