Vintage S. Kirk & Son Inc All Sterling Silver Repousse Letter Opener Knife, Larger Size c. 1925 ~ #1
Vintage S. Kirk & Son Inc All Sterling Silver Repousse Letter Opener Knife, Larger Size c. 1925 ~ #1

Material:  Sterling Silver

Maker:  S. Kirk & Son

Hallmark: S. Kirk & Son Inc  Sterling

Size:  Length ~ apx. 5  & 7/8 inches

Quantity:  1

A very nice, vintage all sterling silver letter opener, manufactured by S. Kirk & Son Inc in the Repousse pattern;  a dense multi-motif floral design on stippled ground.

According to our resource information this mark was used from apx. 1925 - 1932, so this is definitely a quality, older production vintage desk accessory.
Apparently this opener was made in two sizes and this example is the larger version.

This knife features the repousse pattern design on both sides of the handle and it has never been monogrammed.
It is in nice vintage estate condition. There are three
extremely tiny minor old nicks on the blade edge that are not sharp and rough, but rather quite smooth from age and use, that are barely notable except with very close scrutiny.  More significant, but also quite minor in our humble opinion, is the slightest very subtle tweak to the last one inch of blade (near the point) where it appears not absolutely perfectly straight, but only detectable if examined closely from the side in certain light.  Also, the expected light surface scratches commensurate with age and careful use. The multi - motif floral repousse pattern design remains quite defined.
