Godfrey Phillips featured the touring Australian cricketers heavily in their 1926 and 1930 advertising campaigns.

The cigarette case has very good provenance, it was purchased by an Englishman Joe Letts at a war-time auction held by the Red Cross during the Second World War, he had a slight interest in cricket but he valued the case more for the link it gave him with the country in which his sister had made her home (she married an Australian in World War 1). Whilst visiting his sister in Australia in 1959 he decided to try and found out who Arthur Phillips was and found through a newspaper that Bill Woodfull, who was a member of the 1926 touring party and captain of the 1930 Australian team and then [1959] a principal of a Melbourne Boys School, recalled that Phillips was Chairman and Managing Director of a big English company which had shown a number of kindnesses to the Australian Test teams of 1926 and 1930. There is an original 'Daily News' [Australia] newspaper report, dated 9th December 1959 detailing this, sold with the cigarette case. The case was later purchased by the vendors uncle, a cricket lover and collector of auction items who died around 20 years ago and left the case to the vendor. It has been in her family ever since
