Product Description

A rare Dunhill Sterling silver cigarette case, of sailing interest.

Retailed by Dunhill of London, the case is assayed for London and dated 1935. It bears the ‘R&R’ maker’s mark for Ramsden & Roed, gold and silversmiths, who were based in Warwick Street, London W1, during the first half of the Twentieth Century.

The case is engraved with a map of the North Atlantic, from Finland to Cuba. Certain destinations have been inlaid with rubies, emeralds and diamonds. The rubies correspond to the Bergen to Newport Transatlantic race of 1935, whilst the emeralds correspond to the Miami to Nassau race week. The diamonds commemorate the races from St Petersburg in Florida to Havana and the Bermuda Race from New London.

The condition of the case is very good, with only a few minor scuffs and abrasions. The interior has retained much of its gilding as well as the elasticated band.

Size: 13 x 8.5 x 0.9cm
