Story

Elegance personified takes the form of this signed Cartier 18k yellow gold cigarette holder. Although some may also mark this as a glove or hankie holder, no matter it is certainly befitting the Cartier name. Art Deco in date, the gold ring cigarette holder has a sleek and clever design with two jadeite beads. One bead slides up and down so that the smaller end opening expands slightly. This allows the insertion of the cigarette (or other object) and tightens up firmly. The larger opening is worn in the finger.

Similar holders for handkerchiefs and others for cigarettes were patented in the US around this time. In its original Cartier red leather and gold tooled box. Box reads, "Cartier Paris 13 Rue de la Paix, London 175 New Bond Street, New York, 653 5th Avenue.

Date: Circa 1925.
