Copperton Lane Antiques & Collectibles

Circa: 1915
Country of Origin: US
Manufacturer: Pre War American Production
This circa 1915 metal letter opener is light bronze in color but the weight suggests it's probably made of brass. It's 8 inches long and has a working 3-/4 inch magnifying glass embedded at the top of the handle. I believe it's an advertising premium salesman sample. Engraved below the magnifying glass is "4001, C. E. Erickson Co. Inc. Advertising Specialties, Des Moines IA". The glass has no chips or cracks, the opener has mild wear and patina consistent with age.
