This beautiful unusual gold filled piece dates to the turn-of-the-century. It opens and closes and was made to trim off the edge of the ladies cigarette. There is some wear to the finish. I have not polished it at all. The bottom portion is engraved with a series of initials. It would be worn on a waist chain or Chatelaine. The bale is 16 mm wide and the base is 22 mm wide. The total piece is approximately 2 inches long. It weighs 9.7 grams and is unsigned other than the note that the patent is pending. Please take a moment to review all of the photos and check our the rest of the items in the shop. I update items frequently.
