Old Carved Abe Lincoln Letter Opener

Regular price $48.00

Another little piece of Americana: I do believe the carved (whittled) head on this old folk art letter opener was meant to represent Abe Lincoln, achieved especially well in profile (hard not to recognize that jawline!) And I believe it is a pretty old carving, perhaps done while Lincoln was still a lived memory. 

Great condition, great patina, very useful still as a letter opener if desired. 7 1/8" l x 1 1/8" w x 7/8" d.
