Hi,

Hi Andrea welcome to the forum.

German made please see; http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884.html
Nice niello checkered pattern cigarette case. I guess made around the turn of the 19th century but perhaps others could tell you more and the maker's name.

Of course, he meant the turn to the 20th century.
