Cherry amber bakelite Hugo Grun Denmark hand hammered silver 830 letter opener. I found the Danish silver hallmark, and it was by Hugo Grin.
He also worked with amber. I didn't see any bakelite that he did, but some Norway silversmiths did use bakelite as well. The Amber or Bakelite or Copol has a grain to it, is definitely antique, and has some wear that one comes from decades of use. Lightly worn and in very good to excellent shape, this is a classic piece.Both the handle and the hand wrought silver look great. All of these items are from the estate of my parents who were 50 year antique dealers. So many of these things have been in our family for decades. A majority of our items were bought at garage and estate sales from the 1970s-80s in South Florida.
The reason is clear, we expect to sell these items. We strive to price items very fairly, and to sell them fairly quickly. So please inspect the quality and rarity of these pieces, and considering my willingness to let them go below market value, I would not expect these items to remain online for long, as many are nicer and more desirable pieces. Some are harder to find than others.And Some may be one of a kind. Some may even be famous pieces. We allow local pick ups, and If you want to come inside the house to look around, be our guest. We have hundreds of books & a vast variety of other things that are not listed online. The house is going up for sale in the next month or so. We will tell you if this is the case, and we will update your tracking information when your package ships out. We have been sorting through a 3,800 square foot house packed with many different items, with only a little time left to list some of the highlights.
It is our top priority to correct any blunders, oversights or errors. We assure each item has been inspected & documented, for both our protection & yours, and we will not send out your item in a condition we haven't already noted in the description, or had visable in our photos. All of our higher end items do have secret marks we have documented.
And we take multiple photos of all items. My mom is legally in charge of the estate, and is supervising all sales, providing us with valuable information on these items, so we are working with her to list everything, including all of her vintage clothing.Although my parents were antique dealers, a vast majority of what is here is from their personal collection which has not seen the light of day outside this house for the past 40 years. Many of their items speak for themselves. We can provide additional photos or answer additional questions on all items, but please realize that we can only do so much so fast; and once it sells, it is gone.
We can only take care of one person at a time, but even so, we do guarantee our enthusiasm to find these items a nice new home. As this is an estate sale, All Sales Are Final, (unless we miss listed something).
