Great original antique Japanese Meiji period demon holding a large fish mixed metal page turner / letter opener with very nice detail and craftsmanship. The knife form brass blade is engraved with a swirling dragon.
I can not find the artists mark. 11 3/4" long x 1 1/8" wide. It in very good original condition with only normal wear consistent with its age and use, the tip of the fish's nose looks to be clipped(see last figure), otherwise no bends or repairs. (please view all photos for the best representation of quality and condition). Please look at all the photos to get a good idea of the true condition, the photos are part of the description.The items I list are primarily antique or vintage, and may have some minor flaws. I try to mention all damage or wear to the best of my ability; but I don't hold these pieces to the same standard as I would if they were new. Good vintage condition means the piece is in the condition consistent with it's age. If you have any doubts or questions, I will be happy to answer your inquiry.
