Silver handled letter opener with magnifying glassproduct code: 17E018
This letter opener and magnifying glass is a clever piece of modern re-cycling/re-purposing. The handles are silver handles from an old cutlery set. They carry matching hallmarks for Sheffield, 1902, and the maker Martin Hall & Co. The hallmarks are all very worn and barely readable. The opener's blade is a new steel blade that has been securely married to the handle. The magnifying glass is similarly a new item. The handles each measures 7.2 cm (2.9") long. The letter opener blade is 11.8 cm (4.6") in length. The magnifying glass has a diameter of 5.2 cm (2"). All measurements are approximate. The set is not presented in any relevant packaging. Please study all photos as these form an important part of the description.
