This is a great letter opener. An artisan of the 1920s in The Greater Shanghai area took a good piece of bamboo and carved the letter opener and added across the top a caravan of elephants. There are thirteen very lucky ones. Condition excellent. We had the rosewood stand made to show it off to good effect.
