This is a very large Solid Silver cigarette case is either from India or the Middle East. There are no marks but I tested the case and it is high quality silver. I think it is either Antique or vintage it certainly has age. The front is I think the Filigree side, but I suppose you could use both sides. There is a solid diamond shape in the middle with some symbols I'm not sure if it is initials. On the other side is some Niello work of a domed building with a wall surrounding, lots of palms and in the fore ground are the palms reflected in the water.
As I said the case is large approx 13 cm long and 8 1/2cm wide and approx 190 grams in weight.
I would love to know the country of origin, and some idea of age.
Many thanks for looking
