A very unusual smoking combo in the form of a miniature revolving piano stool. The top cushion opens to reveal 2 compartments for snuff and matches, the base can be used as an ashtray, and where the three legs meet there is a cigar cutter which is operated by revolving the top cushion. Height 21 cms. Diameter of top 11.5 cms. Diameter of base including the feet 17 cms. Invented by A.E Bell. Circa 1890.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
A highly collectible item. The plate is showing through some of the nickel which we think gives the mini stool a faded charm. If you prefer it replated then please let us know.
