This item is an EBONIZED CIGAR STAND WITH CIGAR CUTTER. Included are three upright containers - one each for cigars, cigarettes and matches. The ornate brass cutter is at the front of the stand and includes a match strike mounted in an ornately decorated brass frame. The cutter, if you want to, will polish up easily and nicely. We prefer to leave things with the signs of age and let the buyer polish them if they so choose. The stand rests on a round base 7 1/2" in diameter. Overall, the stand and components are in excellent condition.
