A wooden frame with mounting and recess featuring the Princess Mary tin ,the original packets for the cigarettes and the tobacco,the pipe and period photos of the King and Queen and Princess Mary and a message from the Princess. .The burgundy backing cloth is now very faded over the many years since WWI. The frame shows understandable wear but in good condition.Does not appear to have had glass in frame as this would have not fitted with the contents in frame. The cigarette packets have not been opened, so we are unsure whither they contain the cigarettes and tobacco, we would rather not open the packets to find out. The packets do appear to be full but could not say for certain what is in them. The paper items have been glued to the backing cloth. Due to the frame being fragile this item cannot be posted outwith the UK.
