click for more pictures for item 2323f
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." The style of this suggests a date circa 1900.
It is in very good condition. There are no bends or damage. The finish is lustrous but does show light surface scratches consistent with normal use.
