I have a cigaret case it's made by R N holings & Co in Birmingham in 1944-1945 and it is silver (R.N.H.& Co)can you give me a value on this.
Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Your vintage 1940's era cigarette case would have been produced in Birmingham, England by R N Hollings & Co and is composed of 92.5% sterling silver.
Based on current market values as well as recent sales results your vintage art deco sterling silver cigarette case would have a resale value of 115-150GBP.
If you were to attempt to sell the piece in a brick and mortar antique shop, a retail value would be closer to 175-200GBP.
If there are any dents, dings or deep scratches to the case, this would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today,
Best of luck with your vintage cigarette case,
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated,
Thank You,
