This beautifully made wooden paper knife features as the handle, a violin scroll end and peg box. Joined to this is the long blade which is probably walnut, or possibly olive wood. Whether the handle is made from the scroll end of a violin, I don't know-perhaps it was made for a musician or a music lover. The length is 396 mm (15.5 inches) and it is 32 mm (1.25 inches) wide where the handle joins the blade. It is in wonderful condition. Datewise, probably the last quarter of the nineteenth century.
