This Edwardian Silver Amber cigarette holder pendant is such a fabulous piece of history! Hallmarked to 1904, this unique pendant has a Sterling Silver outer case, and 9ct Rosy Gold Amber cheroot case.
This cigarette holder was crafted by Henry Perkins & Sons, distinguished silversmiths in the early 20th century. We love that the cheroot case itself is crafted from solid Amber, an insight into just how glamorous the Edwardians were. This fine collectable is a must for any antique jewellery collector.

VERY GOOD: This Edwardian Silver Amber cigarette holder pendant is in fantastic condition throughout. Considering its age and intended use, there is some minimal wear. The Amber is completely free from nicks and scratches, feeling smooth and buttery to touch and the hallmarks are deeply set into the surface of the case and holder. There is also one small ding to the top of the Silver case but this does not detract from its wearability.
