RAF Trench Art Cigarette Box

a very nicely worked example in mahogany with an RAF Albatross badge applied to the lid This would appear to have been ‘borrowed’ from an Officers forage cap badge! When opened two fitted trays pop up with each holding 20 cigarettes. Elastic strips hold the cigarettes in place which are now slightly stretched. We don’t have any provenance with it but suspect may have been created in the Middle East or North Africa in WW11. it measures 8.5” x 5” and stands 3” tall (22 cm x 13 cm x 8 cm).
