$165.00

Marked with the number "1," the Gorham "lion, anchor, G," and "Sterling," this combination bookmark and letter opener is a novel item.

It measures 4 3/4" long and weighs just over .6 T. oz. It has a tubular stem handle with a series of concentric rings. This has an Aesthetic sensibility to it.

There is a crosspiece at the attachment with the blade. This supports an element that suggests a Celtic knot in design, and which serves as the upper portion of the actual page marker.

The blade itself is flat, symmetrical, and has a pointed tip and a matte finish surface. This is engraved with a "JCW" script monogram.

It is in very fine condition, free of bends, breaks, nicks, or repairs, and is without surface wear.
