in stock

An extremely rare Edwardian, sterling silver novelty cigar cutter and lighter on green nephrite base. Shaped as a stylised knight riding a horse, the cutter is operated by depressing the horse's head. Hallmarked (.925 standard), London 1908. This is a wonderful example of English eccentricity coupled with expert silversmithing. It's intriguing to think of the mind that devised it. Edward VII said 'gentlemen, you may smoke' and the man who commissioned this did that with flare. An exquisite  piece. Condition: excellent, just general wear and one rein slightly shorter than the other. Dimensions: Length 155 x width 83 x height 115 x mm. Weight: 600 gms.
