This most beautiful letter opener has a blade of mother of pearl and is topped with a sterling silver and paste thistle. As the thistle is the emblem of Scotland I believe it may be Scottish.

It is 3 and 5/8” (9cms) long and 12mms across the top of the thistle. It weighs 7 grams.

The amber thistle top is a paste stone, delicately faceted. The base is silver (tested) with a finely cut design to catch the light. This kind of work is typical of items from the early 20th century. Beneath it is a silver ball.

The mother of pearl blade is lustrous and catches the light. It widens towards the pointed base .

This beautiful piece in excellent antique condition with no chips. It will arrive in a gift box and would make a wonderful gift.
