    Hello everyone.

    This is a combination match book holder and cigar cutter. It has a patent date of Oct 12. 15 and is maker marked for R&G Co. This is possibly Ripley and Gowan. It measures 2 1/2" x 2".

    It is a gorgeous rose gold colour, plated or filled or rolled gold I would imagine....it does not have any gold marks!!! It is in lovely condition on the outside, with use marks on the inside.....I have just put an old matchbook in it for show.....

    It has a beautiful scrolled design and initials on the front, with the back plain. I am thinking it was probably used by a lady....but could have been used by a man I guess attached to a watch chain.....what do you think?

    I think this one is just beautiful, and unusual. I have had this since 2009.
    Hope you enjoy seeing it.....thanks, Judy

      Most likely for a man, as I don't think women smoked cigars in 1912... :-)))) Or, did they? :-O
      I would imagine it was attached to a chain and put in a pocket. It's really lovely!
    2. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Thanks Bonnie, not sure about women smoking cigars in 1915, cheroots were smaller though so maybe.......but I think it is more the size (even though it is so pretty) for a man as you say, attached to his watch chain in his pocket.
      Thanks for the love too!!

      It's lovely Judy.
      What are the initials on the front?
    5. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Hi Karen, thanks....I think the initials might be HSF.....that script is beautiful but so hard to read!!!

      Hello Rick, thanks very much for having a look at this, it is interesting isn't it! I have seen lots of the other sorts with the vesta and stamp holder combined, or the vesta and sovereign holder combined....but none like mine either. Pretty special I think! Really happy that you appreciate this, thanks again for the comment and for the love too!
