This fine and elegant cigarette or cheroot holder is from Eastern Tibet or the adjoining western regions of Sichuan or Yunnan provinces in China.
It comprises a single piece of light brown agate with high-grade silver mounts that have been engraved with Sino-Himalayan scrolling motifs.
The mouthpiece end is fluted and carved with a mushroom-head mouthpiece.
The silver mounts show pleasing wear from use.
Overall, this is a delightful and elegant item without repairs and in good condition with fine patina.
