Antique enamel cigar cutters are rare. Antique enamel on 830 silver cigar cutters are also very rare. Antique enamel cigar cutters on 830 silver made by and bearing Marius Hammer's signature are extremely rare! We found one and here it is!!

Made in the early 1900s or potentially earlier (Marius Hammer died in 1927 and items hallmarked MH were no longer produced). Both sides of the cutter are guilloche enamel (under the enamel, the silver is machine engineered with a pattern which is visible through the enamel work). Highlights consists of white enamel shapes. The style of this piece leans towards Art Deco which started earlier in Europe than in the USA. Generally, most discussions of Art Deco say it began in 1920, but it is known to have begun earlier in France and it's influence spread quickly.

This cutter measures 2"long and is 5/8" wide. One side is purely decorative, while the other, is the business end. There is a slide on the back (what appears to be a black stripe on the back is the opening allowing the sliding element). It is on the blade where the MH 830S marks appear.

Excellent condition!

A bit of background: Marius Hammer, Georg Jensen, Renee Lalique, and Carl Faberge were contemporaries working the in the 1800s to early 1900s. Each of them represents the best silver and gold and enamel work from their respective countries. Marius Hammer worked in Norway. The others Denmark, France, and Russia.
