The checkerboard niello cigar cutter is low grade silver and the blade is plated base metal. If this piece could tell us about its life I would wager it would be quite interesting. It was found on a mid 19th century chatelaine... I would like to have met that lady! The cigar cutter still works despite a bit of interior rust, and there are no losses to the niello. The swivel hook is 800 silver. From Amsterdam, circa 1890.
Details..... The cigar cutter is 1.89" long not including the hook, the hook is .99" long.
