Advertising letter opener, "Compliments of Martin H. Smith, N.Y. U.S.A.", a pharmaceutical manufacturer near the turn of the 20th century. Other side reads "Glyco-Heroin (Smith) & Ergoapiol (Smith), two of their most popular products. Designed to keep the company name in view of the pharmacist and doctor at all times! The handle holds an embosser (squeeze action) that protects the signature of the doctor from being forged. Measures 7.5"l. Marked "Pat.Pd" inside handle. Appears to be nickel silver or a derivative. This piece has seen considerable use, and has many scars to prove it: slight crimp to the tip, many scratches and strike marks. Still remains an interesting and useful piece of history. Sold as is. Email for further photos if needed. Inglenook Antiques...Established 1989.
