Old Navajo Silver Eagle Letter Opener Set With Turquoise
Martha Struever, the distinguished Native American jewelry dealer, collector and scholar, kept a fine antique desk in her bedroom. On that desk, she displayed her collection of wonderful old Native American letter openers. This Navajo silver eagle letter opener lived for many years on top of that desk.
The exceptional piece is set with a single natural turquoise stone. Just look at the detail on the bird, which includes feather stamp work, wing file work and even little feet. You're sure to fall in love.
Whether you display this for the fine piece of artwork that it is or you choose to actually use it is up to you. Whatever you choose, the piece has survived the test of time.
It measures 7 1/2" with a 1 3/4" width. Unsigned.
