This is a high quality letter opener featuring a figural representation of a jockey, rendered with great details. It is marked with an inscription: The Jockey Club Conference, August 17, 1958 and name of the original owner. The back of the figure is marked "Sterling". I don't believe the actual blade is sterling, likely stainless steel. No condition issues to report, stately look and patina.

The sterling jockey figure is 3.5 inches high. Total weight is 42 grams.
