About this item

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning and very rare circa 1900 Shargreen cigarette box present to the Jockey Bernard Brownie Carlsake in 1927

A very rare good looking and functional piece of collectable smoking equipment. Shagreen is exceptionally collectable on its own, it is Sharkskin and very collectable

The main body of the box is some king of timber, most likely cedar wood as it keeps the smell of the tobacco inside, you have bone trim around the edges as those are the hard wearing areas, a sterling silver plaque on the top

The plaque is inscribed as follows "To B.Carslake From R.Stutfield The Greatful Owner Of Mat McGlue 18-4-27

Naturally R.Stutfield was the owner of the horse Mat McGlue and Bernard Brownie Carlsake was the jockey that rode him
