Price incl. VAT and delivery

A vintage, possibly antique, scrimshaw style bone letter opener measuring approximately 9.5in long to top to tip. The upper part (which is varnished) has been decorated along the main body with a stag, and presumably the highlands in the background, and a diamond shaped half band towards the handle. The underside remains unvarnished.

There are a few minor dinks to the edges which we have endeavoured to show in the photographs. Otherwise, the letter opener is structurally sound. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century, or before that.
