Bauhaus, cubist, art deco small cigar cutter scissor. Circa 1925-30. Made from metal and adorned with mother of pearl on both sides. When opened, the scissor takes on the shape of a stylized scottie or schnauzer dog.
Stamped with the acronym "D.R.G.M." on one of the cutters, which stands for Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster, meaning that the design or function of an item was officially registered throughout Germany. D.R.G.M. registration was introduced in 1891 and continued through occupation, up until 1952.
Measures 2⅞" long by 1½" wide at widest. Very nice condition.
