Crafted in the late 19th century, this Victorian letter opener is simple and elegant. The opener is comprised of a length of creme-colored ivory, carved with thin form and rounded ends. The end is embellished with fine silver metalwork, stamped with the hallmark of English silversmith Arthur Wilmore Pennington. The end is capped with silver filigree of foliate scrollwork and a thin silver snake that wraps around the ivory. With its minimalist form and delicate ornamentation, this antique letter opener is a fine addition a desk or study.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
