LONG READ BUT PLEASE READ!



This is a vintage Dunhill cigarette holder from the 1940s. It is made of 14k yellow gold and features a white spot dot. The holder is not handmade and has not been modified. It is marked 14k gold. It is 4.5” long and a collectible item in the Tobacciana category and is designed to hold cigars and cigarettes.


There’s a story that goes with this cigarette holder. I was 12 years old and over at my girlfriend’s house who was on the wealthy side. Her mother was always beautiful with full makeup on and beautiful gowns that she always wore around the house even though she rarely went out. She also always had a martini in one hand and this gold cigarette holder in the other always with a lit cigarette and quite drunk all the time. But she did it so elegantly. One day while l was over there she took her cigarette out of this 14k gold cigarette holder and gave it to me. I wasn’t smoking that young yet. Why she gave it to me l would never know. I have kept it for all these years on my vanity in an antique ashtray and never used it. Because this was a well used item by a beautiful lady it’s not perfect. There is a tiny dent near the opening for the cigarette and a scratches there as well. There are tiny scratches on it. The black mouthpiece shows wear because she held it sometimes with her teeth. This was an unhappy woman and l never met the father and husband. Nonetheless she was always beautiful and put together. She always wore gowns and never pants or jeans. A romantic but tragic story and every word is true without embellishing


You don’t need to smoke to have a 14k gold cigarette holder. It makes great prop for a multitude of uses. I won the annual photography prize with a beautiful girl in a black slip and fedora with this very cigarette holder pictured here. Aldo excellent for costume parties and balls. It’s also a great conversation piece as how many people go around with a 14k cigarette holder?


The lady who traps my cats so we could get them spayed, neutered and vaccinated picked it up and asked me if it was real gold and l just told her the story. She got very excited and said “Let’s look “ and with the help of a magnifying glass sure enough it was marked “14k gold” and l found another Dunhill for sale here on . I’m selling it at a low price because l have to take care of my 15-18 cats who cost a fortune to feed. Also money goes to my favorite cat shelter here locally - Simply Cats. This is Kitten Season now and unfortunately l have 2 pregnant females we couldn’t get spayed in time. So you will help my cats and kittens so much by buying this cigarette holder to buy all the supplies needed for kittens and adults. T


I have gone over this holder with a magnifying glass although the little dent can be seen with the naked eye. There is wear and another small dent to the rim where the cigarette goes into. There are some short scratches near the rim. This cigarette holder definitely has history.


Please ask questions before buying because this is nonrefundable or returnable. It’s very elegant and l have described the flaws as honestly as l can. If you are unhappy with it please notify me immediately so we can work it out.


Thank you!
