Description

This is very nice collectable and usable letter opener or paper knife dating from the early 1930's.

This piece carries full U.K. hallmarks for Birmingham 1933 and has the makers marks for Collingwood & Co - the production date puts it firmly within the Art Deco era.

The piece follows a very popular design that's been produced from Victorian times through to modern day - this particular design has also been produced by various silversmiths over the years, including esteemed makers such as Asprey & Co.

The letter opener consists of a flat blade of silver which tapers to a point - at the finial end there is a three dimensional fox head. The reverse of the blade has the punched hallmarks described above (see picture 7 for details).

The opener measures 13.7cm in length and is 1.7cm across at its widest point - the total unpacked weight is 21.5g.
