BEAUTIFUL RARE 18TH CENTURY COMBINATION LETTER OPENER - WAX SEAL REMOVER Circa 1770. This is a beautiful extremely Rare 18th Century Georgian combination Letter Opener - Wax Seal Breaker, i would estimate this amazing letter opener dates to circa 1770 making it over 250 years old, its breath taking, you will not find another like this on the market as its extremely rare and very special, it has been hand crafted with so much fine detailing, from the smooth finish on the body to the wonderful curved lines, this has been riveted together with silver pins and its just so beautiful, this has an elegance that is harder to find these days and its timeless in its appearance, the quality of the craftsmaship is superb, its in beautiful condition for its age with minor surface wear, this would have definately once belonged to a wealthy Gentleman from the 18th century and been used daily to remove the wax seal from the closed letter and then used to open ones letters, i cant say enough how beautiful and rare this really is. Imagine if this could talk what wonderful and fascinating stories this could tell. This is so very tactile and once held has the most wonderful feel, my photos dont do it justice. This will add something special to any collection.
