A classic English equestrian stud box, made of brown leather, and suitable for carrying cufflinks, studs, tie pins etc.

Horse-shoe shaped.

Leather hinged lid, with press stud closure.

The top is marked with the coat of arms of Peninsular & Oriental (P&O).

This includes the quartered shield with kangaroo, elephant, lion and dragon, surmounted by the rising sun.

Beneath is the Latin motto:  Quis nos separabit (Who shall separate us?).

Red velvet lining.

As the box doesn't actually say "P&O", I assume it was company issue - perhaps for ships' officers? - rather than a souvenir item for passengers.

This is a vintage item.

The coat of arms was granted in 1937, but it doesn't look like "wartime economy standard issue", so I expect it was made in the late 1940s or perhaps early 1950s.

Plenty of room inside, as you can see from the pictures.

Note: I have put some odd studs and things in one of the pictures - this is just to give an idea of scale.  They are NOT included with the item.


Very good condition, but with some scuffs and small surface marks from normal use.
