Description


This fine antique George V sterling silver and blue enamel cigarette case has a square form with rounded corners.


The subtly convex anterior surface is embellished with a fine and impressive blue guilloche enamel panel which reflects a concentric undulating line design, emanating from the bottom left corner of the cover.


The cover is further ornamented with an applied silver floral motif accented with marcasite to each petal and leaf designs.


The reverse of this guilloche enamel cigarette case is embellished with impressive engine turned decoration.


The rounded sides of the case are plain and unembellished.


This case is fitted with a plain rounded thumbpiece and hallmarked push fit catch, which when released reveals two hinged compartments.


The interior of each compartment retains the original gilding and one side bears the contemporary hand engraved inscription 'With love from Flufferty, 22/1/38'.
