Mid Century Brass Letter Opener with Original Leather Case

Mid Century Brass Letter Opener with Original Leather Case


This mid century silvery metal letter opener is accented by brass and comes in a leather gilt-embossed case, which, at one point, also held an accompanying pair of scissors, as expressed by its shape. This type of desk accessory was once very popular, before the automation and digitalization of many office-related tasks. The letter opener is aptly sharp, and fits snugly into its original case. The case is a pale olive-gold with a gilt embossed design outlining the shank. The overall feel of the set is sleek and modern, elegant in shape and style, and practical in 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 generations.
