Hello, I have 2 similar cigarette boxes that I’m trying to find the maker of. They are quite old, given to my father in England.
One is large (554g) and I will attach photos of this one first, then I will take photos of the smaller one that is 354g and do separate posts so they aren’t mixed up.
The large one was purchased at Thornhill & Co and is marked as such on the back (see photo)… it is also marked 144 & 145 Bond… which may be the address.
I can see the sterling lion, a lion face straight on (which i think is London), a womans face facing to the left (which i think is duty mark of Queen Victoria I. Seems to be a capital H in a shield as well, which could be date of 1883. I’ve done a lot of research but am clueless as to the maker.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Since I had to compress the photos they are harder to see. If you need further photos please let me know, I have taken a dozen pictures.
I will also post the 2nd box I have a bit later.
