Good afternoon, Christopher,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. I still can't make out the marks that would identify the maker but this is a cigar humidor with presentation inscription. Contrary to popular thought, having a presentation inscription does not always add value - it would if the person receiving or giving it was of considerable significance or importance. As it is, this would be catalogued for auction as follows:
An Edwardian sterling silver cigar humidor
London, bearing date mark for 1896, with later presentation inscription "To S.J.Glanville /This token of affectionate esteem / from a few of us who worked with him / on "Lloyds List / 1920-1926"
bottom with leather lining; interior with adjustable divider.
5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
