cigarette-case, probably German ; help with maker

Postby fripou » Sun Jun 25, 2006 8:51 am

Hello

When my father died, I got his cigarette-case.

It is in .800 silver, with a fine guilloché design on the ouside (both sides alike) and a highly polished inside.

The latch for holding the cigarettes and the upper corner of the lid bear the same mark : a steeringwheel and 800.

Can anyone please tell me who this maker was? and if he was a good silversmith ?

Thanks in advance
Regards
François

Hello, a steering wheel like that was used by several German makers (Miller, Mahla and others), so it is not possible to say who made this. Sorry. Best wishes, Bahner
