Navajo-made silver and turquoise letter opener, 1930s
Navajo-made silver and turquoise letter opener, 1930's. Measures 5 1/8" long, and just over 1" wide at the widest part. The handle has a hand-stamped silver concho, with a small turquoise cabochon in the center, very traditional Navajo design. These were made to sell for the Victorian people coming out west on train to experience the Native American people and the beauty of the west.
