In the late 19th Century & early 20th century, almost all men used tobacco of some sort; and Cigars and Cheroots (thin cigars) were very popular in the late 1800s. This small cheroot /cigar cutter is 2 1/16" tall closed (2 7/8" tall when open) x 3/4" wide closed (not including the ring), and 1" across the top when open, and was intended to be carried on the end of a watch chain; i.e., used as a watch fob by hanging by the tiny loop at the top of the sheath. This small piece weighs a mere .2 oz. or 9 grams. Their rarity is compounded by their small size that would easily be lost. The end of a cheroot or cigar needed to be cut to allow the cigar smoke to flow properly through the cigar before lighting up. When the Pearl handles are pulled out, the inside spring is released showing this is a 2 piece scissors cutter with a sharpened center hole for cutting. After using, the Pearl handles are squeezed together and put back into the black leather covered metal sheath; the internal spring holding the Bowie Knife cutter in the closed position. The sheath is made from nickel plated brass that holds the internal spring inside at the base of the cutting blades, and acts as a stop for the blades when pulling the Bowie hilt out of the sheath. There are a few variations in the design of these Bowie cutter fobs. Some of these cutters have a plain metal sheath and some were stamped marked with a retailer. Some were black leather covered, and some were printed with advertising. Some were made to be sold in Tobacco stores or high end retail outlets, and others with a Brand name had stampings were given to preferred customers and patrons who purchased their goods. Most advertising on these pieces are from Champagne makers, as is this one. As is common, the printing on the leather wears easily from pocket wear; so some of the advertising is obscured. The brass "cross guard" appears to be silver plated with only traces left; and has tiny ball finials with one having a hole and ring for attaching to the watch fob. The metal blades appear to be polished hand forged steel, with original polish and naturally occurring patches of dark aged patina. The Mother of Pearl handle scales are shaped in the early "Dog Bone" Bowie knife hilt style to easily pull out the cutting scissors. The pearl scales are secured with 4 tiny pins made from German silver. It took a Master Cutler to set these tiny pins in the delicate Mother of Pearl. All natural material shrinks over time, and these pearl scales are small and very thin. There are tiny hairline cracks at the bottom pins caused by naturally occurring shrinkage and the stress of the pin over time. Note the images are many times larger than actual size, and exaggerate the details. This piece is in average condition, considering it's 125 years of age and being a utilitarian object used daily for years. The blade spring is strong, the cutter works properly, and opens / closes. These pieces were made by skilled Sheffield (England) cutlers, are of high quality; and all dating to the 1890's period. This would be perfect for any cheroot / cigar cutter collector, tobacco, Gentleman's, Gamblers, Folk Art, Miniature, watch fob or smoker's collection; and can still be used today. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FREE U.S.A. & INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING, HANDLING, DELIVERY FOR USA PURCHASES, SHIPPING, HANDLING & DELIVERY IS FREE VIA U.S.P.S.

Buyers must keep their PayPal account in good standing. Buyers must show good faith conduct with the seller. Improper good faith conduct can include, but is not limited to, any means by which a buyer can attempt to unjustly benefit from the Seller's Terms & conditions or eBay's Buyer Protection plan. Moreover, good faith conduct does not include buyer's remorse, regardless of the reason. Returns will not be accepted such as changed my mind, Found a better price, Just didn't like it, Ordered by mistake, Arrived too late, etc.. Returns will not be accepted and buyers will be reported to eBay when buyer makes false claims such as doesn't match description or photos, doesn't seem authentic, Doesn't fit, Wrong item sent, Missing parts or pieces, Doesn't work or defective, Arrived damaged. If you wish to take advantage of any of the issue resolution options available from the seller, you must have the business courtesy to discuss any potential issue within 3 days of receipt, and gain agreement with the seller prior to requesting a return through eBay, leaving feedback or initiating any online dispute process. By doing so, buyers commit to negotiate in good faith, and that they have not initiated any other form of resolution processing; including eBay / PayPal dispute process or credit card charge backs, or purchases where you have been or may be compensated by a third party. Possible buyer / seller resolution examples are: if seller and buyer agree that an item is significantly different than described and photographed, exchanging an item for a different item from the seller (whether listed or unlisted), credit from the seller against any current or future item, adjustment, trade, return, or any other arrangement that is mutually agreed upon between the seller and the buyer, and confirmed in writing via eBay's email system. These options are designed to expedite resolution of any potential issue quickly, easily and amicably, in lieu of eBay / PayPal on-line dispute resolution process which is lengthy, laborious, and allows decisions to be made by a 3rd party instead of the principals; i.e., the buyer & seller.

Buyer must use appropriate shipping, delivery confirmation and / or signature confirmation (items $250 ) and/or insurance at the buyers expense. Restocking fee, partial refunds and refunds are negotiable when buyers are dealing in good faith. v.11.30.2018 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PLEASE VISIT MY NEW WEST COAST TRADING POST STORE!
