Rip it Open

Whatever happened to the art of letter opening? Instead of using an index finger to rip open a love letter from a lover thousands of miles away (or an electricity bill), consider investing in a stylish letter opener.

1stDibs.com, the online auction retailer, has a nicely-curated selection of vintage and antique objects d'art to consider, including a beautiful sterling silver Gucci letter opener/magnifying glass combo from the 1970s.
