Italy - Paper knife - 1925

Description
Italy - Paper knife - 1925
Original - Aluminium - Very good condition

For collectors, rare aluminium letter opener made in 1925/1930, initially with the initials F.N.A.I. (Federazione Nazionale Arditi d’Italia) engraved on the blade and black handle. Later, for propaganda purposes, the same letter openers were made without the FNAI emblem and with a handle in natural colour (aluminium) as opposed to black. Some companies of the time used them as souvenirs for customers by engraving their logo on the blade.
This piece is neutral with no writings and, needless to say, it is 100% original and a true rarity.
The letter opener is made entirely of aluminium measuring 23.5 cm in length including the handle. It is shaped like a fasces and is in excellent condition.
It will be packed with the utmost care and shipped via registered mail or express courier with tracking.
