Italian Art Deco Mother of Pearl Celluloid Letter Opener

Italian Art Deco Mother of Pearl Celluloid Letter Opener


This Italian art deco silver steel letter opener is accented by a celluloid handle that is fashioned to mimic the iridescent quality of mother of pearl. This type of desk accessory was once very popular, before the automation and digitalization of many office-related tasks. The tip of the letter opener has been worn with time, but still works like a charm. This piece is incised with a script “Italy” at the base of its blade near the handle, indicating its country of manufacture. Its aesthetic is classic yet modern, elegant in shape and style, and practical is purpose. Add to your office space for a touch of classicism, gift for graduation, display for a touch of interest, or include in your collection of desk accoutrements of bygone eras.
