Here is a wonderful Fernware Paper Knife (letter opener). It seems that Fernware is getting so popular today, it's hard to get or keep in stock. This is a nice piece, in excellent condition. It measures 8 and 1/2 inches long, and 3/4 of an inch wide. It is circa 1870. Life ferns were used to decorated the wood to form Fernware.
