A very fine antique, Victorian letter opener.
The 'blade' for opening the letters is made from polished mother of pearl, it is not sharp and is nice and smooth with a lovely nacre.
The mother of pearl is mounted to a bronzed metal stags head mount which runs down into the handle which is styled as a stags leg, also made from bronzed metal, it has a very realistic detailing, excellent craftsmanship.
At the base of the leg is a polished agate hoof in red with white streaks.
The letter opener comes in its original leather bound, satin lined case.
Good condition overall, a couple of small dark marks from the case on the mother of pearl, some signs of use but overall very nice.
Approx 9.75" length and just under 1" width at the widest point.
