Antique Sterling Silver & Tortoiseshell Cigarette / Trinket Box 1918
Hallmarked for Birmingham 1918.
This is a lovely antique hallmarked solid sterling silver cigarette box with a tortoiseshell lid inlaid with silver pique measuring 5″ (12.5 cms) x 3 1/2″ (9 cms) x 2″ (5 cms) high.
Although this box would have originally been made to take cigarettes it would also make a great trinket or desk top box.
It is nice and strong, inside is clean and it weighs 335 grams.
It’s hallmarked for Birmingham 1918 but I can’t make out the silversmiths mark – there are no inscriptions or monograms.
