Dedication Silver Cigarette Case
In solid (.800) silver, with German Imperial marking inside of the case; outside of the case encrusted with six miniature WWI period awards, including Wurttemberg, Order of Friedrich; Baden, Order of Zahringen Lion; Iron Cross 1914; as well as Gold clover-leaf shaped pendant, containing three cabochon Sapphires and two tiny rose cut diamonds; further, outside is engraved with five Family Crests, and numerous signatures (presumably, of his fellow Officers/Comrades); inside of the case is also engraved with one Family Crest, and several signatures, and is dated Okt.16. Measures approximately 8x9cm, and weighs 118 grams. In very fine condition. Such cases were generally given to senior Officers by his subordinates- fellow Officers on important occasions like promotion or wedding. It is unusual to find a case with so many Family crests however, suggesting it belonged to a very senior Officer. Un researched.
