Wonderful marabou figural cigar cutter. Designed by Ignatius Taschner, Germany (1871-1913), known for his animal sculptures. The hammered brass bird has a guillotine-design steel beak. Raise beak, insert cigar into the eye, drop beak to cut, and allow cigar tip to fall into waiting copper bowl beneath. Clever and whimsical. Germany circa 1905. 4 3/4" W., 5 3/4" H., 9" H. (beak extended)
