Antique Sterling Silver Handled Agate Letter Opener. This beautiful and very unusual letter opener has a sterling silver handled (filled with resin) and a banded Agate blade. One side of the handle is set with a line of green, Scottish hardstones. It is hallmarked for Birmingham 1903 with the maker's mark'S & Sn'. This piece will be presented in the brand new gift box shown in the photos. This piece is in good, usable condition and the blade is nice and secure to the handle. However, after 119 years, there are a few things to bring to your attention.

To the collar of the handle, there appears to be a short area of repair to the seam although it's not highly noticeable. The blade is in very good condition although there appears to be a tiny nibble or area of wear to the tip which is barely visible.

One of the stones on the handle has a small chip to one end. All aspects are shown in the photos below and reflected in the asking price for what is quite a rare example.

Prices are calculated to include the weight of packaging as well as the weight of the item. To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat. All packages must be signed for upon receipt. Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it.

I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices. On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Get images that make Supersized seem small.
