Antique Art Deco Era Silver Fox Head Letter Opener Collingwood & Co 1933
Antique Art Deco Era Silver Fox Head Letter Opener. By Collingwood & Co - Birmingham 1933. This is very nice collectable and usable letter opener or paper knife dating from the early 1930's. This piece carries full U. Hallmarks for Birmingham 1933 and has the makers marks for Collingwood & Co - the production date puts it firmly within the Art Deco era. The piece follows a very popular design that's been produced from Victorian times through to modern day - this particular design has also been produced by various silversmiths over the years, including esteemed makers such as Asprey & Co. The letter opener consists of a flat blade of silver which tapers to a point - at the finial end there is a three dimensional fox head. The reverse of the blade has the punched hallmarks described above (see picture 7 for details). The opener measures 13.7cm in length and is 1.7cm across at its widest point - the total unpacked weight is 21.5g. The all round condition of the piece is very good with no issues to report - naturally, this piece is 86 years old and does show some very minor signs of wear in the form of very light contact marks here and there, but these would certainly not be classed as damage. Whilst the form is aesthetically pleasing it was a practical piece of silver that was probably used frequently in the past so in that respect signs of use are considered absolutely normal. Please study the images to satisfy yourself as to the condition of the item - if you have any further questions please ask and I'll be happy to oblige.
