WWII ALUMINIUM TRENCH ART SWEETHEART CIGARETTE CASE EGYPT MOSQUE P.O.W CELLULOID

A stunningly detailed WWII aluminium engraved cigarette case with the front depicting an Islamic mosque and the back depicting pyramids, palm tree, desert scene & engraved EGYPT. Not sure what the coloured sections of the front panel are made from, possibly some sort of celluloid. Also there is a variety of some sort of inset stones around the engraved stars & mosque roof.
From research I have found that these were made from downed planes & billy cans during c1940's & is probably Prisoner Of War (POW) or British serviceman piece of trench art. More than likely made to be sent home to a waiting sweetheart, in this case the inside is engraved 'Dorothy' & 'Bill' so goes along with this theory. The interior is also ornately engraved, one side with rectangular aperture for holding a photograph & the other with cross clip for holding cigarettes in place.
In very good condition with only some minor scratching/marks to the case exterior & a small area to the blue colouring lifting away (see pics).
Weighs 145g unpacked. 

Measures approx closed: 14cm Length ~ 8cm Width  ~ 1.5cm Depth

POSTAGE INFORMATION & SALES TERMS 

All items will be posted within 1-2 working days once payment has been received. 
I always retain proof of postage, put a sales invoice within the parcel & add my return address externally.
Collection is available on all my items from DH7 7NF, Durham. Item/s to be collected within 7 days of auction end at a mutually convenient time to be arranged prior to collection.
For items with a value of £50+ a Recorded/Signed For method of postage is used, this also applies to International sales.

DELIVERY ADDRESSES; Items will ONLY be posted to Ebay/Paypal registered home addresses.
If you require delivery to an alternate address please add this address to your Ebay/Paypal account & use it during checkout/payment.

UK BUYERS; Postage will be by myHermes courier service or  Royal Mail 2nd Class. Larger/heavier items may be sent by City Link/Parcelforce.
If you require a quicker method of postage (e.g 1st Class/Special Delivery) please contact me for a quote if not already listed.
Courier deliveries have different prices for specific areas (postcode areas IM, HS, ZE, Scottish Highlands ) & myHermes don't deliver to specific areas (postcode areas JE, GY, PO Boxes, Restricted parking access, BFPO address) so an alternative postage service would have to be used which would incur additional charges. All additional postage charges are to be paid by the buyer, I will inform the buyer of any additional costs & then invoice through Paypal for funds. 

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS; I post worldwide using Royal Mail Airmail Small Packets, this is not a tracked/signed for service.  Items being posted internationally have size & 2kg weight restriction so if multiple items are purchased they may have to be sent in multiple parcels. International couriers can be used for single items that weigh over 2kg packed up, if you require a quote please contact me.  
I ONLY accept payment via Paypal for international purchases.
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or P&P charges, these charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs may be prior to bidding/buying.
I will not mis-declare the value of an item or mark them as 'gifts' on the customs declaration label - International government regulations prohibit such behaviour.

PAYMENT; All purchases are to be paid for within 7 days of auction end. If you would like to delay payment please contact me for approval as an unpaid item case will be automatically started if payment is not received after 7 days. I accept payment by cash, cheque, postal order or Paypal. Payments by cheque will have to be deposited & cleared in my account before the item will be posted so this will cause a delay in receiving your order.
 Cheques are to be made payable to G Adamson.
