Antique French Royal Letter opener, French Royal Commemorative Brooch Dog (dachshund) with Crown Sterling Silver. I believe this is French, dog with crown was called Bergagne.
Early, from perhaps turn of century, late 1800's to early 1900's. Has two hallmarks on pin holder, but they are small and difficult to make out. Letter opener is done in a repousse style and is very detailed. Has some tarnish, natural of course to silver.This one appears to have a crown at the top. I believe that they commemorated French Royalty. In nice condition with perhaps some minor surface scratches. Dimensions: 5 3/4 inches long 1 1/8 inches at widest point.
