An antique brass cigar cutter with a face that perhaps expresses the horrors of smoking?
This beautifully bizarre art deco brass cigar cutter measures approximately 3 x 1-3/4 inches. How it works is by inserting the cigr tip into the open mouth of the bat-eared gargoyle-esque man, push his chin down, and a small blade cuts the tip off. The back slides open to remove the tips. Circa 1920s or 30s.
