This listing is for a superb quality silver and enamel cigarette case decorated with a hand painted scene of an MG TD in a field with a bi-plane in the back ground, possibly crop spraying. You can see with an eye glass that it has been hand painted under the enamel. It’s a lovely object and very high end. The case is fully hallmarked and bears the marks for Joseph Gloster, Birmingham, dated for 1944. The case measures 8cm x 9cm and weighs just over 133g. The case is in superb condition, just missing the elastic that would have held the cigarettes in. No damage to the enamelling at all and very little sign of wear to the engine turned back. The thumb push is working fine and the hinge shows no sign of wear. A highly collectable and valuable piece. Please study all the images carefully as they form an important part of the description.
