An antique carved bone letter opener in the shape of a crocodile with open mouth, and with intricate detailing to the crocodile’s back.

There is a very small area of bruising and a short hairline crack at the end of the tail (which we have tried to show in the photographs but with limited success). Otherwise, the letter opener is structurally sound. The letter opener has been cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.

The letter opener measures approximately 9in long. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the early part of last century, or the later part of the nineteenth century. Weighs around 28g.
