From my private collection. An engraved and well used bronze opener.

 

My agent says it dates to pre-1917. Lots of wear and a broken tip. Some might say, “it’s broken”; others would say, “it’s stunning”!

 

Regardless, this is a genuine antique that is guaranteed to last at least another 300 years.
