An Austrian silver-mounted hippo tooth double dogs' head cigar cutter, Wenzel Brezina, Vienna, circa 1900

Catalogue Note

Wenzel Brezina specialized in hunting themed items, particularly smoking and riding accessories.  When he participated in a 1910 hunting exhibition in Vienna, it was noted, “his specialty appears to be cigarette-cutters with animal heads... one also comes across walrus teeth with richly-chased silver figures.” (Neuwirth 1976, p. 126).
