‘Guillotine’ cigar cutter by Theo Fennell
Price Code: ££££
Theo Fennell, London
An extraordinary quality, novelty Sterling silver table cigar cutter in the form of a French guillotine, the upright frame with a sprung, angled blade with retaining chain which gently falls to the stocks below to remove the tip of the cigar which lands into a gilded silver ‘basket’ below. The base is fitted to a honed, black slate base with a Sterling silver (vacant) cartouche ready for engraving.
Bearing hallmarks for London jeweller Theo Fennell and dated 1994, the guillotine sits in a bespoke two-door presentation case.
Length: 9 inches (23 cm)
