Victorian silver combination paper knife & pencil by Sampson Mordan
A very stylish silver combination paper knife and pencil, with wrythen moulded decoration to the shaped handle and a removable finial forming the small pencil, the plain blade hallmarked Sampson Mordan & Co., London 1896. Length measures 8.5" (21.5cm).
Hallmarks a little rubbed but still clearly legible. Maker's mark appears to over stamp a different Mordan mark. Pencil and handle appear unmarked.
