This decorative little Art Nouveau horn letter opener dates to the late 19th century, circa 1890. We love the two hand carved blossoming flowers, synonymous with the Art Nouveau movement. At the top of the paper knife we find the engraved name of the original owner or carver ‘E. Birkel’.
Measuring: Width 5 1/8 inch (13 cm) by height 1 inch (2.5 cm).
