This fine antique Indian Colonial silver cigarette box has a plain rectangular form.

The surface of box is plain and unembellished.

This box is fitted with a hinged cover with an incurved thumbpiece to the front.

The cover is ornamented with fine and impressive applied decoration depicting components of the Middlesex Regiment’s cap badge: ‘57’* amidst tied laurel beneath the Duke of Cambridge’s cornet** and the wording ‘Albuhera’.

The box has a cedar lined interior and a solid silver base; a solid silver base is a sign of quality.

* The 57th Regiment of Foot (West Middlesex) are otherwise known as the “Die-hards”; this was coined after the Commanding Officer Colonel William Inglis cried for his men to “Die hard the 57th, die hard!” in the Battle of Albuhera in 1811.

** In 1920 the Duke of Cambridge’s Own was re-named The Middlesex Regiment.
