I have an item of the same name but different style of exterior of lid. "Made in London England by Marcovitch Piccadilly. W." On the inside of the lid features a small picture of a well groomed gentleman sitting at his desk facing a window and to the right of picture it reads "Over 100 years ago, Mr Marcovich commenced to make cigarettes in London. He made them for the manly dandies of his day and filligly he made them good. Today we still make only good cigarettes; the name of Marcovitch on a cigarette means quality in it." MARCOVITCH & CO established over 100 years in Piccadilly, London, W.
