Italian Micro Mosaic Letter Opener, Antique Italy Signed FAP Fabbrica Angelo Pessar, Italy Grand Tour Souvenir, Brass Book Mark Brass - image 1 of 11

This antique Italian brass letter opener from Fabbrica Angelo Pessar features a beautifully inlaid micro mosaic handle front. The blade is thin enough that the piece could even be used as a book mark. Such a wonderful Grand Tour souvenir!

Measurements: approx 7-1/8” long x 1-1/8” at the widest.

Markings: stamped on the back Made in Italy around the initials FAP for Fabbrica Angelo Pessar.

Very good condition. The brass has not been polished and shows some tarnish, minor rubbing, and minor spotting. It appears to have been gold plated but much of the plating has rubbed away. The brass blade is thin and has a minor wrap. One of the little mosaic tesserae stands out from the edge and feels a bit sharp.
