Product Details

  • A rare art deco Dunhill smokers gong nutbird dating from around 1930. This large and unusual item portrays a standing grotesque bird made from various wood with phenolic beak and eyes and with a brass gong hanging from its tail. The nutbird has a small hole in its back to hold the striker and the bird stands on a textured base with match holder and striker and ashtray recess. These examples were made by YZ for Dunhill and normally are much smaller in size. This is a rare and unusual example and a wonderful talking point to add to any serious collection!
