~ Interwar Royal Air Force Fencing Union Cigarette Box ~

A beautifully made R.A.F. Fencing Union cigarette box, made from plywood. The hinged lid lifts up to reveal a sloped compartment to place cigarettes into. There is a small drawer that pulls out to retrieve a single cigarette.

On the front, is a brass symbol depicting two men fencing. Below is a fencing mask and two sabres on a bed of leaves.

On the top, is a brass symbol of the R.A.F. Fencing Union. Displaying two sabres, the R.A.F. eagle and the King’s crown.

On the bottom, the cigarette box is covered with green felt.

The RAF Sports Federation can trace its charitable lineage back almost to the formation of the Royal Air Force. The Royal Air Force Sports Board was established following the disbandment of the RAF Central Sports Fund and the RAF Officers’ Sports Funds in 1921 when the funds released were invested in the Air Council Central Fund Sports Board. The Sports Board was reconstituted in 1948 before being amalgamated into the RAF Central Fund in 1964.

~ Dimensions ~

The cigarette box weighs 460g and measures 11.5cm x 11.5cm x 14cm.

~ Condition ~

The back right corner is slightly chipped, the brass symbols are ever so slightly oxidized. Aside from this, the cigarette box is in excellent condition as can be seen in the pictures.
