click to view larger pictures

Sale Price: Sold


Rare and wonderful tusk cigar cutter with silver mount, ca 1890. Mount in form of two cheek-by-cheek dogs’ heads with floppy ears and eager red-glass eyes. Blades concealed in mouths, which also have some major dentition. Cigar inserted in snout front for one dog, and in snout side for the other dog. Snap go the jaws! A loyal pair of retrievers you'll want to keep close at hand.

A one-of-a-kind piece – we haven’t had anything like this in 40 years. Austrian hallmark. Condition: Rich patina and definition. Loss to tusk tip. Otherwise very good.

Dimensions: L 11 1/2 x D 3 1/4 in. #BN411
