Guest Book
Featheredged, oval-end handle, short reverse rib, ornate feathered script mono W L on handle front with identifying No. 22 below. Length is 5-1/8" New England birdbacks are extremely rare. The bird on this piece is probably unique - a dove at rest among branches. It is not at all like the Philadelphia birds.
