Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me in identifying this cigar (?) box, and perhaps what it might be worth. It weighs around 1.7 kgs and from what little I've learned about the hallmarks on this website, was assayed in London and is sterling silver. It refers to the Guild of the Nineteen Lubricators, which from what I can tell is a registered charity in the UK. If anyone has any information on it, that would be very helpful!

The box predates the inscription as the hallmark is London 1928. FW is probably Frederick Hentsch. For value I suggest you check out completed auctions on an internet auction site. These will give you an idea what people are willing to pay.
