Unusual Pair of Hand Engraved Copper Letter Openers, Native Indian Motifs

Interesting pair of hand made copper letter openers or book marks, each with an engraved Native American Indian motif, one of a teepee, and one of an Indian head, they have hand cut and beaten edges, and are very decorative. These came from an old estate, I estimate they date to the 30's or 40's and are probably reservation made for the tourist market. The larger opener measures 8" log, the smaller 5", I lightly hand polished as they were very dirty, but there is residual patina and the copper is a warm rich color. Nice hand made pair for the desk or display, see my other listings for more nice letter openers from the same estate.
