Product Description

A rare set of end WWI, German made, brass cigarette case, tobacco case and matchbox holder with the WWI divisional badge for the British 34th Division.

This consists of a black and white chequerboard with 25 squares in an enamelled finish. Ageing has caused the white to become light brown. The cigarette case has engraved on it EASTERN – DIVISION ANDENKEN AN DAS RHEINLAND. The pieces are made by SOHLEGEL G.M.B.H. COLN – NIPPES.

The cigarette case is a bit battered on one edge and has lost a bit of the badge, but the tobacco case and matchbox holder is in good condition.

All three items do have the remnant of some fake Nazi badges having been affixed and removed, but it doesn’t detract from the pieces. The 34th Division was raised at the beginning of WWI and was constituted partly of ‘Pals’, the majority which were to die on the Somme. It fought exclusively on the Western Front and was part of the Army of Occupation in the Rheinland. The Division was disbanded in 1919.

Size cigarette case: 9.5 x 7.5 x 2 cm (3 ¾ x 3 x ¾ inches)
Size tobacco case: 8.5 x 3 cm (3 ¼ x 1 1/8 inches)
Matchbox holder: 6 x 4 x 2 cm (2 3/8 x 1 ½ x ¾ inches)
Weight: 195 g
