This decorative red box was produced in England during the later 19th century, in 1899. The box was produced for H. L. Savory & Co who were cigar importers and cigarette manufactures. They had a royal warrant by special appointment to the H. R. H. The Prince Of Wales, H. M. King Edward VII, H. M. The King Of Italy, H. M. The King Of Spain and H. M. The King Of Portugal. They were also granted an imperial warrant of appointment to H. M. The Emperor Of Japan.

Our favourite feature of the box is the gold impressed Prince of Wales's feathers which is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales. It consists of three white ostrich feathers emerging from a gold coronet.

The case is constructed from card and is covered in red paper manufactured to imitate leather. When we open the case we can see the gold printed manufactures information further listing the special warrant of appointments. On the vase of the case we find a stamped mark reading ’14 NOV 99’ and the original sticker revealing the price as ‘1 1/2d’.

This is a rare and decorative little box that will display excellently; we have not found another identical example. The combination of the rich gold and the regal dark red is timeless.

Measuring: Width 3 3/8 inch (8.5 cm) by height 1.25 inch (3.3 cm). Depth 2.75 inch (7 cm).

Condition: Light surface wear to top cover and back of box.
