Each time the top of the box is rolled open, a cigarette comes out of the lower draw and is held in place in the dog’s mouth. A store of cigarettes is held within the box.

This box was made in Japan, although the bottom of the box is simply stamped FOREIGN. The box has a sample label on it with the number 1882. This was clearly a sample sent to Davenports, but we do not know from which Japanese supplier it came.

This is a Rolinx product, made in England in the 1950s. Each time the roller blind lid is opened, five fingers emerge from the front of the box, each carrying a cigarette.

When you press the black button on the top, the music starts and the four doors swing open to allow cigarettes to be taken. After a brief pause, the doors start to close and the music stops when the doors are fully closed. There are two tunes, which play alternately each time the button is pressed. This may have been sent to Davenports as a sample because it was found in a stock room. There is no known evidence that Davenports actually sold them.

When the drawer at the bottom is opened a cigarette is instantaneously lifted into the mouth of the dog. The effect is magical. The box contains a stock of cigarettes, which is filled by sliding back the top of the box. Each time the drawer closes it is automatically loaded with a cigarette ready for the next use. The box is stamped on the base: Fairylite Regd. Foreign. Patent No. 205291 Foreign.
