Superb cigar holder in excellent and apparently unused condition. Perhaps a gift tucked away. The case and the holder are both just elegant. Amber and 12k gold (acid tested), it would appear to have never been used at all. Purchased in France, I suggest it is French, though usually it is 18k gold used. Likely 1920-40s, it is 3.5" long, flaring in 4 facets to a widest width of 5/8" and the opening for cigarette or cheroot is slightly more than .25" diameter. Case is old, but shows hardly any wear. As good as new on this one. 

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Amber is the fossilized resin from ancient extinct trees. This is a deeper dark honey in color. Very Art Deco in aesthetic feel to the form and design, really. Acid tested at 12k gold. Case is 4.25" long and 1" widest, closed. Interior very clean.
