Can anyone identify this tool?
brass, approx 5 1/2 inches long
3 quarter inch "legs" like a trivet.
Old cigar cutter.
It is a candle snuffer and wick trimmer.
Im new to this board and was going to post a pic but am unsure how. Do a search for candle snuffer images.
Newer ones don't look like yours so I would guess you have an older one.
By golly, I think Chris is correct.
