What makes this piece very special is its super design and the high quality maker, Henrik Moller (1858 to 1937), who is generally better known for his beautiful silver jewellery. On this piece, the finial has been crafted in lovely detail in the'Dragestil' style. It is modelled as a double sided figural Viking Norseman's head - please see the photos and, in our opinion, they do not do it justice.
Dragestil' is a Norse revival style of the Arts & Crafts movement, so popular in Great Britain around the late 19. Century period, by proponents such as the famous William Morris. In Norway, this drew on inspiration from the Viking era and early medieval images. Henrik Moller drew on designs from his native town of Trondhjem (Trondheim) found on early architecture. The entire piece has been case in solid silver, grade 830, not just the terminal.In good condition, you can imagine what a wonderful, rare, unusual addition this would be to any collection of Norwegian silver, particularly by the highly collectable, Henrik Moller. And can you imagine a more stylish way of opening your letters? It measures 19.5cm in length and weighs just under 50g. As noted, it is in good condition and ready for use.
Dark marks are either reflections or bits of age related patina. This is an extremely rare piece of Norwegian solid silver grade 830 in the form of a letter opener/paper knife by the highly collectable Henrik Moller of Trondheim, Norway, in the Dragestil, with a double sided figural terminal of a Viking Norseman's head.
