A very nice antique novelty brass cigar cutter modelled as a Marabou bird.
This is a scarce piece of tobacciana, well made and designed, attributed to German sculptor Ignatius Taschner.
The bird has a slim profile design and the beak lifts to action the cutter blade, the cigar is placed in the eye and the beak pushed down to cut.
There is a bowl below which the bird grasps to collect cut ends.
Numbered near to the cutter when lifting with an impressed number 895.
Good condition overall, very slight rusting on the blade, residue within the inner of the bowl from cleaning.
Approx 3.5" length, 6.25" height and 5" width.
