PORTABLE ASHTRAY OR PILL BOX. I have an interesting item for sale. I believe it to be an antique pocket portable ashtray, perhaps by Churchmans. The kind of thing you can keep in your pocket or handbag and unobtrusively dispose of your cigarette ash and close the lid. It can also be used to keep your pills in if travelling and don’t want to bring huge packets. I believe it to be silver plated and of foreign origin but there are no identifying marks other than the letters R1 engraved on the hinged lid. The lid fits snugly and the hinge is in vgc. The interior looks unused.
It is about 58 mm in diameter, approximately 20 mm thick and weighs 88 grams.
