A letter opener that’s a treasure in more ways than one for not only is it from Italy, not only was it made by Bvlgari, not only is it made of sterling silver but it’s in the form of a Cockatoo! No lightweight lass (translation: it’s solid, not hollow) this crested creature fits in the hand well with a nice balance. These letter openers were given as promotional gifts to Bvlgari clients, rather than sold, so there aren't many of them floating around. Measures just over 4.75” from crest to point and is in good condition with some faint use scratches. The bird is marked “Bvlgari, Made in Italy, 925” on the side as proof of her origins and will come to you in her original felt pouch and presentation box. Would make an excellent gift for someone special (if you can bear to give her up) or wow ‘em at the office as a demonstration of your good taste.
