A century or so ago cigarette holders were just as much a fashion accessory as they were a functional way to make smoking more tasteful. Not only did the cigarette holder keep the heat of the tobacco away from your lips, but it also served a little bit like a filter does on a modern cigarette. At the same time, it was also the perfect thing to help you express your emotions. Especially if you were the type of person who likes to talk subtly with their hands.
This prop cigarette holder is the perfect thing for replicating a gentleman of a lady from the late 1800s through the middle of the 20th century. It’s meant to be a prop, but if necessary, it can be used on a limited basis for holding a real cigarette.
