The Tobacco Box is oval in form and the silver sides are decorated with reeding. The hinged cover and base are inset with a beautifully shaded tortoise shell panel and the cover is set with an oval disc cartouche engraved with St Andrew with the Saltire cross, above 42 and a crossed thistle and rose sprig. This is all above 42nd Highlanders. The box is in quite excellent condition and is a rare survivor from this period. This was obviously used by a member of the 42nd Highlanders Regiment while on campaign.
