Beautiful Georgian Mother Of Pearl Carved Page Turner
BEAUTIFUL GEORGIAN MOTHER OF PEARL CARVED PAGE TURNER. This is Stunning Rare Georgian Mother of Pearl Page Turner, i would estimate this was crafted circa 1800 making it nearly 220 years old, The detailing is exquisite, the page turner has the most wonderful shaped handle and body, the wonderful carved handle of the page turner has open pierced decoration to the top with a carved spray of foliage, this then has engraved decoration of what appear heart shape that has more engraving of foliage , this framed with a border and where the handle meets the body of the page turner you will see again more engraved decoration, its beautiful and this shimmers as its being used, the body of nthe page turner has a smooth finish giving it a timeless elegance. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a weathly Geogian Lady and been used daily to open her letters, this was many years ago when times were so very different. It is so very tactile and once picked up has the most wonderful feel, it is a wonderful example of a fine quality letter opener, this will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice. With just a chip to where the handle meets the body one just one side as shown in the last 2 photos, that being said it doesnt detract from its rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy.
