An unusual and interesting late 19th century silver and ivory smokers companion by Thornhill’s, with four ivory compartments each with silver mounts, the large front bowl would have been for cigarettes or small cheroots, the central compartment at the back would have been the lighter with the central tube holding a wick, the two compartments on either side I am slightly unsure at the moment, they both have a removable silver holder with a sliding locking bar and Prince of Wales feather handles, the only purpose I can think of is perhaps to enable you to hold the cigarette or cheroot whilst smoking so as to not stain your fingers, any better solutions would be most welcome, with a twisted silver handle at the back to enable you to pass it round the table.   The items is marked at the front W. THORNHILL & Co, 144 NEW BOND St.
