A silver cigar case in the shape of department store Harrods that was paid for by the owner of rivals Selfridge's following a bizarre bet is tipped to sell for 100,000 pounds.
The intricate case was commissioned as a result of the wager between the then Harrods' managing director Sir Richard Woodman Burbidge and Harry Gordon Selfridge in 1917.
The pair each bet their store would be more successful than the other by the time six years had passed from the end of the First World War.
The case has been in the family of Sir Richard, who won the bet, ever since and is now being sold at Christie's in London.
