Title Boer War commemorative ashtray
Nationality British
Period c 1902
Price £60.00

This little tinware ashtray (4.25 x 3.25 inches) has patriotic motifs printed on it, together with the image of Major General French flanked by soldiers with lions at their feet. The maker's logo, A. Lloyd & Sons Ltd London, can be read just above 'Soldiers of the Queen' (with my magnifying glass, at least!).

The piece has suffered somewhat over the years from wear and use. However, most of the main imagery and lettering is still clear. These little pieces simply did not survive and mostly would have ended up in the rubbish, so, although scruffy, an unusual item from the period.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
