Lovely WWI trench art letter opener dated 1914 – 1918. The opener features an ornately embellished blade with a leaf motif and the handle is fashioned from a bullet casing and reads: “FRENCH AMERICAN FRATERNITY 1914 – 1918”.
Approximately 8-1/4” (full length) x 1-1/4” (widest part of blade); 2” bottom diameter
“FRENCH AMERICAN FRATERNITY 1914 – 1918”
This is from a Home Front Trench Art collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBJX16 L/SHEX1/17
8+ (Excellent): The opener shows minor to moderate wear, spot of verdigris on blade, handsome patina, overall excellent condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
