Gorgeous antique French Napoleon III era hand carved solid mother of pearl letter opener with beautiful pierce carved serpent or snake winding up the center of the blade and foliate accented caduceus style handle! In opulent hand carved solid mother of pearl, almost like desk jewelry, this was likely part of a set originally that would have included a wax seal or sceau and possibly a dip pen in case. Unfortunately, this is all by itself, fortunately, it’s stunning! A shimmering beauty, sure to attract eyes and compliments.
Very good to excellent condition. A tiny nip or two but no larger chips, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
