This is a really nice, unique letter opener. On the handle is a deeply carved grape pattern, and on the wooden blade is some additional carving, which also appears on the back side. The wood is light weight and light in color, perhaps gum. Even though this would be interesting as a collector piece, this 9 ½” opener was used; there are light stains on the back where it was held to open mail and there is a spot on the front of the blade. There are no chips or cracks in the wood, just expected wear from use.
This would be an attractive addition to your desk or office ephemera collection or to use every day. Please contact us if you have any questions. Please look at the photos closely, they are part of the description of the item. We will always consider any reasonable offer for our pieces.
