I am posting this for 'Big Jar of Wasps' - since we all know of his love for gold..........

Made in 1949 in Birmingham I think this is intended as a cigarette case - perhaps for a lady. I

am told they used to have smaller cigarettes for the evening. Under the maker's initials of WHM

whom I can't find any trace of - there are some small jeweller's marks - C3/62. This is for the

repair that can be seen on the closure clasp. 62 could be the year or, his order number.

The case is 9ct gold and weighs 152 grams - 4.9 ozs. Must have been quite heavy to carry in a

small evening bag.
