Stamped with the cross emblem of J.F. Fradley & Co., along with the word "Sterling" and the number "1815," this solid silver page turner, aka paper cutter, measures a lengthy 12" and weighs 2.5 T. oz.

It has a flat surface, with slightly beveled edges, and rounded ends that taper from 1 1/4" across at the wide end to 1/2" at the narrow end.

Otherwise plain, it has a flourishing, Art Nouveau style, "JA" monogram, suggesting a date circa 1900.

It is in very good condition...

An exceptionally large, all silver, item, this piece measures 12 1/4" long and weighs 4.2 T. oz.

Made by Gorham, whose "lion, anchor, G" hallmark, along with "Sterling" and the model number "B698" are imprinted on one edge, and the name of the retailer, Boston's "Bigelow, Kennard & Co." on another edge, it is commonly identified as a page turner, but catalogues of its circa 1900 period, label it a paper cutter.

The design is as impressive as the piece itself...
