A Fine and Superb Excessively Rare Museum Quality Gentleman's Club“Grenade” Style Cigar Lighter and Cutter In Silver Fully Swiveling Double-Gimbaled MountsTrophy Horn HandleThis is a superb and excessively rare Gentleman's Club “Grenade” Style Table Centerpiece Cigar Lighter and cutter, with fully swiveling silver double-gimbaled mounts, the handle is a trophy horn.
This is a very large imposing example, measuring eleven inches long. Thereis very minimal damage on the ball (Picture #4 & #5). Thisdoesn't show as its on the bottom near the horn.Truly a work of art with a deeply fluted ball. This piece still has its original chain and cap for the lighter.
This is a rare and unusual find with a low opening offer.How does it work ???
The body of the lighter is filled with spirit or lamp oil, and the screw-in nozzle holds a wick inside the body. The wick is lit and the lighter burns gently as a table centerpiece.
The horn handle and double-gimbals allow this rare example to be passed around the mess table and used to light the gentlemen’s cigars.
Similar formal cigar lighters are still used in Britain at traditional military mess and naval wardroom dinners, and in the finest and most elegant of the London gentlemen’s clubs.
