Manufacturer: Hand Crafted Antique

An interesting utility of the earlier through Victorian era sitting room or library the slender page turner is a remnant of a time when the oversized finely constructed family bible or nicely bound book was a cherished position reflecting status and refinement. So much so that such volumes were handled with gloves or laid out with a page turner which was used to carefully turn pages without soiling them over time by handling. Frequently hand crafted as a token to be passed on in the family, these page turnerswere commonly crafted from thinly slabed whale bone, baleen or a nicely figured hardwood. This offering is an all original example of the latter. Measuring approximately 12 1/8 inches long and 1 1/8 inch wide this highly figured antique page turner retains a rich honey coloration with the soft luster that comes to such dense wood after lots of period handling and decades of natural aging. A scarce companion piece to lay with any fine early volume. ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting our catalog!!
