Description

London 1920 English hallmarked solid silver box with cedar lining and movable divider, made in a heavy gauge of silver and having slightly domed top and rounded corners. Made by Joseph Braham.
This box was given in 1929 to Lieutenant G. C. Holliday upon the occasion of his marriage, by his fellow officers in the 12th County of London Battalion, The Rangers. The lid bears the colours and major campaigns of The Rangers, and the personal inscription.
The underside of the base is leather.
The lid interior is silver gilt.
Size-4.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide, by 2.25 inches high.
Weight-450 grams.
This was given the year of the Stock Crash, and the advent of the depression, and would have been expensive. Lieutenant Holliday must have been held in great esteem by his fellow officers.
This is a fine quality box, probably originally made for cigarettes or small cigars, but also very suitable for dressing table or desk, or for the collector of military memorabilia.
In very good condition, and a much better shape, size and quality than most.
