This item is a HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST BOXER PAGE TURNER/LETTER OPENER. We're calling it both a page turner and a letter opener because, frankly, we can't figure out which one it actually is. We're leaning towards page turner because the point is somewhat rounded but, in any case, it would work well as either. This is an interesting item. The turner/opener is carved out of a small branch with the bark remaining on the upper third. The boxer top is applied and the joint is covered by the cute metal collar with bell attached. The boxer figure is very well carved with lovely color and patina and has a pair of small glass eyes. Overall, this measures just under 9" long. It is in excellent condition.
