ANTIQUE SILVER CIGAR BOXES

The introduction of cigars to the UK can be traced back to 1814, when officers returning from the Peninsular War brought them back as gifts given by officers from the Spanish army. The first silver cigar boxes would have been made shortly after this, but examples from this period are understandably rare, with the majority being made towards the end of the Victorian period and after, when cigars had become more available.

L0840: Sterling Silver Cigar Box With RAF Interest

Hallmarked In 1936

Hallmarked in London in 1936 by Asprey & Co. Ltd., this unique, Art Deco, Sterling Silver Cigar Box, is striking in design, with inlaid gold to the lid and sides, light blue and red enamelled detailing, and the handle is modelled as a nine cylinder radial plane engine with a single propeller. The interior is lined in cedar wood. The cigar box measures 3"(7.5cm) tall, by 9.5"(24cm) wide, by 6"(15.5cm) deep. The date of manufacture, and the choice of colours used in the decoration, suggests a connection to the one of the specialist RAF Command units that were set up during that year. The use of a single propeller engine on the box handle would suggest a connection to Fighter Command, which found fame during the Second World War and the Battle Of Britain.
