Interesting example of a small cigarette box, dating from the Great War period.
that has been hand decorated with the words 'CALAIS' on one side and 'WORLD WAR' on the other. These words appear on several types of Great War period trench art, probably of French manufacture.
The hinge top moved and closes free and easily, there is wear to the surface of the metal likely where it has been polished, however it remains in good clean shape.
No attempt has been made to polish this item, yet it would likely benefit from a light clean and polish if desired.
Measures approximately 2.5 x 3 Inches.
