Hallmarked In 1936
Hallmarked in Birmingham in 1936 by Sanders & Mackenzie, this very rare, early battery operated, George V, Sterling Silver Cigar Lighter, is in the form of a propellor plane, mounted on a wooden plinth which bears a plaque with the original inscription. The batteries are contained inside the plinth which is opened from the base, the propeller is removable to allow lighter fluid to be poured in, and the cockpit canopy is opened to reveal the lighter. The cigar lighter measures 4.25"(11cm) tall, by 7.5"(19cm) long with a wing span of 8.5"(22cm). Richard Stanley Harrison was the Mayor of Carlisle from 1936-1937. In 1936 the Carlisle Council sold Kingstown Municipal Airport to the Air Ministry, and it is likely that this rare lighter commemorates the sale. The airport was later remained RAF Kingstown, and was opened in 1938, becoming home to two squadrons flying Fairey Battle Bombers which had only recently been manufactured, having their maiden test flight on the 10th of March 1936.

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.
