Seller: kollectik1 (2,712) 94.7%, Location: Central Coast, New South Wales, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 392207332966 STERLING SILVER CIGARETTE CASE c.1934 GOLD LINED A very nice small Sterling Silver cigarette case with a Golden interior. It is etched Sterling Silver inside on both the top and the bottom. It is also etched B R Gee from F.V.G. Xmas 34 on the inside top and has a Crest on the front. The Makers Initials are EH I call it a small cigarette case because in 1934 filter tips for cigarettes had not been invented, Cork tips were invented in 1936 and Cork tipped cigarettes were 2 3/4 in. (70mm.) long. In fact most cigarettes made between the 1930s and the 1950s were 2 3/4 in. (70mm.) long. The first Filter tip did not arrive until 1954 and Filter tipped cigs were longer, 3 3/4 in. (84mm.). This cigarette case measures 4 in. (100mm.) by 3 1/8 in. (80mm.) so it will not hold a filter tip cigarette unless you put them in length ways. It will however make a perfect SILVER CARD CASE as it will hold a number of business cards quite comfortably. On the front is etched an armoured hand holding a cutlass with the Latin words Fortiter Et Recte beneath it. This is the ELLIOT CLAN Crest Their motto Fortiter Et Recte translates as Boldly and Rightly The Elliots are an ancient Scottish Clan who arrived in Teviotdale in the reign of ROBERT I and were soon established as one of the great riding clans of the Scottish Borders. The case is probably made in the US but Im not sure of that as a number of countries used similar markings. With perseverance the makers initials could be traced.
