1940s/50s 20 cigarette holder pop up music box

We have a cigarette holder that holds 20 cigarettes, pops up when lid is pulled, and plays (smoke gets in your eyes)
It belonged to our parents and they did smoke back when.
It is made of a hard wood with no markings on it.
Excellent condition, maybe take it to the Antique Roadshow when they are here.
I can provide jpg images if needed
Does anyone have any idea of it's value ?

Not a clue!...But there were all sorts of those things around "back when"....
But I am sure it's "cool beans"!

Did you know that the full title to this song is:
(When Your Heart's On Fire)Smoke Gets in your Eyes?

The full title is little known and little used, and I believe we can see why. This piece was a favorite of my high school band.
