This jewellery box, with the image of a destroyer on its lid, commemorates the building of HMCS Skeena and HMCS Saguenay for the Royal Canadian Navy.

Thornycroft, the builders of both ships, gave this commemorative box to Captain Thomas Phillips, a naval engineer who worked on their designs. Items ranging from large, detailed models made by the shipbuilding firms themselves to commemorative booklets, and including decorative pieces like this jewellery box, have often been produced to mark the launching of a new ship.
