What's It Worth? The Romance Of Antique Letter Openers
In today’s fast-paced internet-dependent world, the giant stack of snail mail that used to arrive in mail boxes every day has been whittled down to a few cards, letters, and credit invitations.
Still, there’s tremendous satisfaction to be had in opening mail with a quick snap of a vintage letter opener. Once de riguer in every environment – from the palaces of royalty to the most mundane office setting – they are rarely used today. This affords us all an opportunity to buy them at greatly reduced rates. Shown here is a small collection of letter openers of various sizes and artistic movements; Victorian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and arts and crafts.
If you have a vintage letter opener (or any fine antique, or an entire estate), please give us a call.
