The sides of each cover of this antique cigarette case are encompassed with further engine turned decoration.

This case is fitted with a push fit catch, which when released reveals two hinged compartments.

The anterior cover of the case bears the original engraved presentation inscription 'Surg Lt I Miskelly, Stormont, Dumfries.', and the other is fitted with the original retaining strap.
