An Alfred Hitchcock cigar box

Wooden cigar box signed and inscribed ("from Alfred Hitchcock") on the sliding top, addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Parker, with "A.H" embossed in brown on two sides, Cuban warranty tag affixed to side and bottom.

Hitchcock was said to have sent supplies to his deprived English friends during the war. A stamp on the box states that each cigar contained in the box is to retail at more than 20 cents each, which would certainly make these a luxurious wartime present.
8 1/8 x 2 5/8 x 1 1/8 in.
