We like a tool that does double duty. This old bronze letter opener has a silver-painted claw handle...so handy when that sudden back itch comes over you and there's nothing handy to scratch it. This will do it and open all your fan mail as well. The opener measures 8 1/8 inches long by 1 inch across the claw.
The opener comes in its original genuine leather sheath. The sheath measures 8 1/2 inches long with its handle which can slide onto a belt. It's 1 1/8 inches at the widest.
Neither piece is marked but the estate had this tagged as 'early 1900s' and 'Dracula hand'. The age may be right but we don't remember Dracula having a talon for a hand.
Age appropriate wear...mostly at the tip where these openers are often used as a tool for something...including back scratching.
Excellent vintage condition.
