Lovely grotesque carved wooden Bavarian? Nineteenth century letter opener/page turner in the form of a devil or imp. Very nice patina, but one of the horns has some loss (see photo). Faded lettering in contemporary hand just visible on the blade, See what drink has brought me to.

Quite a large piece, has a hole in back of head fro hanging, so presumably more decorative than practical. Dimensions : approx 16 3/4" from tip of good horn to end of blade, 1 1/4" wide, head is approx 2 1/4 deep from nose to back of head.
