This is a small version of an old celluloid alligator letter opener with a black boy in his mouth. The alligator’s mouth is wide open and small pencil with the head of a black boy on the end is inserted so that it appears as though the boy has been all but eaten by the alligator. This is also a souvenir piece with Fairy Cave (possibly in Missouri) written on the gator's tail. It has a logo between its hind leg and is marked Japan. It also has a partial paper sticker which probably is an indication that it is a pre-war (WWII) piece. The pencil is also marked Japan.

It measures about 5 3/8” long with the pencil inserted. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
