A very rare and interesting English solid sterling silver letter royal opener. It is hallmarked for London 1936 with the makers marks being those of Aspreys. It has been made to mark the Royal coronation of King Edward VIII, this is the coronation that never took place due to his abdication.
It is in superb condition being free from dings splits distortions and repairs, the box is also in superb condition, not marked Asprey but their colour with a crocodile effect finish so possibly the original. The letter opener measures almost 7.5 inches (18.8cms) long by over 1 inch (2.9cms) wide and weighs 44 grams. A very interesting and rare piece as most would have been recalled.
