FA02A80A-3CB9-457D-B537-B218800A691C_zpsHi I picked up this item and was intrigued to find out more about it I have managed to locate the silversmith but unable to work out the crest on the front I just think it’s a really interesting piece 

hmm how do people attach pictures on here it’s not allowing me to the size of the file 

 

many thanks

Hello . Any indication of regimental number ? or bataiilon ? The piece is apparently a cigarette case gifted to some officer who won the 1913 shoot competition .the bataillon command payed the prize . the crest of arms engraved on probably is that of the recipient of the prize. Requires a Nobilty Almanach to determine the Family .

Hi there is nothing else on it bar that inscription and the crest , the kommandeuce is the commanders wife which I thought was unusual and someone has also mentioned Prussia to me but it’s just hard to work out how u can find the battalion

Hello Linda ,  Yes , kommandeuse could means in certain sense wife of the kommandant, but the term was also applied during ww2 to the female KZ wardens tpe Ilsa Koch and others.
