Measurements: WEIGHT: 1 troy oz. sterling - LENGTH: 6" - WIDTH: 1/2" tapering to 1/4"

This letter opener was purchased in Arizona in late 1950's - early 1960's. The design and hallmarks indicate that the opener was created by a Hopi silversmith - although I have not been able to identify the specific silversmith by the hallmarks of a sun and bear claws.

Clearly marked "sterling" and in excellent, undamaged condition.
