Vintage Green Bakelite Parker Super Wunup Dunhill Cigarette Case
Vintage Green Bakelite Parker Super Wunup Dunhill Cigarette Case. This case still has the ‘wun-up’ dispenser in place and is a wonderful colour!
” Just slide the top and up they pop”
It has a ribbed top which slides along a metal channel. As the top is pushed along, cigarettes pop up on individual springs mounted in the base of the case. ‘Wunup’ cigarette cases were available from 1932-1960 and made by the Parker Pipe Company.
In pretty good condition, the sliding top is showing slight age related wear and there are a few minor surface scratches and blemishes on the case and a couple of top covers are missing off the internal springs. A couple of the springs are loose.
A great tobacciana or Bakelite collector’s item.

Parker Super Wun-Up
Made In England
Made by Parker, Beacon House, 141 Notting Hill Gate, London W.11 dating to about the 1930s.
In 1922, the Parker Pipe Co Limited was formed by Alfred Dunhill to finish and market what Dunhill called its “failings” or what collectors would call ‘seconds.’ Prior to that, Dunhill marketed its own “failings,”often designated by a large “X” over the typical Dunhill stamping or “Damaged Price” with the reduced price actually stamped on the pipe.
