Antique Carved Letter Opener 19th Century Decorative Arts Writing Accessories

Offering for sale a lovely antique letter opener. We believe this to be ivory, with an outside chance of it being very fine bone; from the mid 1800's; an antique piece made before any legislation on ivory or other protected materials. This is from England, and is carved to perfection ! Notice the ornate handle shaped like a prehistoric fish with a bird on his head ! For his tail, the gently curved knife part, with elaborate piercings all over and a very graceful curved tip. This piece is approximately 8 & 1/2" long and is in great condition with no cracks, no chips, no repairs, mild wear from age only. Truly a beautiful item.
