This Gorham sterling silver bird form letter opener is a beautiful example of the silversmiths creativity and skill. The elongated head and neck flow smoothly into a long fanned feather. Both sides have superb quality high relief decoration along with glass eyes. One eye has been scratched noticeably and is pictured as such. It weighs a hefty 196 g and has a wonderful tactile feel. The length is a robust 10 3/4 inches with the width being 1 3/4 inches at the widest point on the feather. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like additional images.
