Vintage silver plated ivory book page turner c1900 in excellent original condition.The handle's hand chased detail and design are superb. Measures 12 inches long. Page turners were used on rare books so the the pages would not tear or be stained by the reader's hands. They could also sometimes be used as letter openers.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
