A superb presentation item, a wood cigar box with engraved silver lid and stag antler trim on the sides, given to Hess by the City of Salzburg upon the annexation of Austria in 1938. This elaborate gift, 10" x 7 1/4" x 1 3/4" deep, bears a hinged silver lid with images of people in traditional garb, stags and mountain goats, the castle at Salzburg and the crest of the city. The tab attached to the lid is fancily engraved in German: "To celebrate the birth of Grossdeutscheland the city of Salzburg to the Fuhrer's deputy Rudolf Hess". Six solid pieces of stag horn have been attached to the sides of this rustic box, which our consignor has also filled with cigars. Very good.
