Up for sale an Victorian Sterling silver with Niello cigarette case from Germany/1918 in mint condition. It's not marked and I don't know who the silversmith is, for the year, I'm guessing by the inscription on the inside.

I believe it is an aerial battle, on the date-6th October 1918 I found this: Meuse-Argonne Offensive WW1, approximately 554 soldiers of the 77th Metropolitan Division advance into the Argonne Forest with a French division on their left flank and the American 92nd Division on the right. The snuff box was bought from Germany, so who it was given to and on what occasion I leave it to you to guess!

Wonderful workmanship, custom execution in wonderful condition. Niello-this is the art of ornamenting metal surfaces that is thought to have originated with the Egyptians and spread throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. It is an enamel-like substance made alloys of sulfur, copper, silver and lead and used as an inlay on engraved metal! The lid hinge work perfectly and the lid closes exelent. This lovely quality genuine Victorian Cigarette Case is made for 9(2x3) cigarettes, up to 3 inches or 75 mm long, weight 53 grams.
