A treen paper knife or page turner, European and almost certainly German in origin. Made from a wood which is very light in weight, with a punched design and the name STAV B BACH punched into one side of the blade.
Eighteenth Century, or very early Nineteenth Century. It has some ink marks which in no way detract but rather add a little history to the piece. It measures nine and a quarter inches in length.
I feel this piece has its own very personal character, keeping alive the spirit of the man who made it.
