I inherited a silver cigarette box which is inscribed with 1927 but I want to find out a bit more about its history. The hallmarks show that it was made by Walker and Hall of Sheffield but I can’t find a date of manufacture. Attached are a picture of the box, the hallmarks that were stamped on one end, and some numbers that were stamped on the base. Could the ‘W’ on the base be the date letter? Any further explanation would be much appreciated.
I’m guessing this example is pretty common and has no intrinsic value.
