ANTIQUE HALLMARKED STERLING SILVER LETTER OPENER- SPIRAL HANDLE- Wm. NEALE- 1891
For your consideration a sterling silver English hallmarked letter opener that dates to the Victorian era. This lovely piece has a spiral handle and is well made and quite delicate; probably intended for use by a lady.

Please view the pictures above as they hopefully show all in detail. Positioned alongside a size AAA battery for size comparison in one picture. Main hallmarks on the pointed section comprise the makers mark'WN' for William Neale & Son, the anchor for Birmingham, the date letter'r' for 1891, and the lion denoting sterling silver. There is a tiny lion hallmark near to the end of the handle that I've tried to show in the pictures. The end is hexagonal and it too has a rubbed lion hallmark.

Measures 14.2 cms long and weighs 11.6g. Super condition given that it's 127 years old.

There are minor surface imperfections/tarnish as expected. The end hexagonal section has a couple of small indentations. Lovely example of English Victorian silver. I have lots of interesting silver listed in my shop; please take a look by clicking on the shop symbol above right side of the page.
