A Fully Hallmarked Sterling Silver & Cedar Wood Cigarette Box "From The Officers Of The 17th Tank Btn 19/10/19" The item measures approx 17.8cm by 19cm by 5.5cm and weighs; 578.3g in total. The item bears a full set of London 1919 (d) sterling silver hallmarks. There is no makers mark, presumably rubbed. As far as I am aware the 17th Btn of the Tank Corps were an armoured car Battalion who served at the western front and were posted to Ireland after WWI. The item is a wonderful window into the early days of the armoured vehicle. The item has obviously seen some use in its 98 years of life. The external sterling silver cladding has various knocks and bangs along with a professional repair by one hinge end. Two corner points have bangs with tiny splits to the silver that look to be stable.
