This is a Superb and Desirable piece of Middle Eastern Silver. Made in Solid Silver it is a beautiful Letter Opener in the style of a Dagger featuring a Niello design of a Tree Lined River with Boats on it that I believe dates from during or just after the Second World War. Though it could be from many different Arabic areas especially Egypt the picture at the top looks very much like the famous Al - Khazneh Temple at Petra Jordan. As is normal with these handmade Arabic pieces it is not hallmarked but it has been electronically tested at a precious metal refinery to confirm it is Solid Silver.
It weighs 24g and measures 14.5cm long while the blade is 18.5mm wide. It is in a used but good condition for its age with no real damage but with some very minor surface wear.
