Smoking may be less popular these days but smoking memorabilia is more intriguing than ever.
This antique Persian silver filigree cigarette holder is sterling silver (acid-tested) in a woven silver design that looks like fine lace. It's very intricate and an art form that's almost lost with the elder artisans who did this.
The holder measures 3 3/4 inches long. It's 3/8 inch at the widest. It weighs 10.1 grams.
We've left the holder with its original unpolished patina...some collectors like to see the aged look before polishing (or not). Note that one side is darker than the other because it was exposed to the air. When you look through the holder, you can see clearly to the end. When you run your finger along the holder you can feel a very negligible dip near center but there are no breaks or flaws to the filigree.
Excellent antique condition. Circa early 1900s.
