Description


This fine antique Indian Colonial silver cigarette box has a plain rectangular form.


The surface of this Indian silver box is plain and unembellished.


This box is fitted with a hinged cover with an incurved thumbpiece to the front.


The cover is ornamented with fine and impressive applied decoration depicting components of the Middlesex Regiment’s cap badge: ‘57’* amidst tied laurel beneath the Duke of Cambridge’s cornet** and the wording ‘Albuhera’.


The box has a cedar lined interior and a solid silver base; a solid silver base is a sign of quality.


* The 57th Regiment of Foot (West Middlesex) are otherwise known as the "Die-hards”; this was coined after the Commanding Officer Colonel William Inglis cried for his men to "Die hard the 57th, die hard!” in the Battle of Albuhera in 1811.


** In 1920 the Duke of Cambridge’s Own was re-named The Middlesex Regiment.


Maker: Unknown
