Is that an ivory page cutter or page turner? I like this picture very much.

Victoria....

I think it's a page cutter but you could certainly use it as a page turner. Everything in this photo is simply wonderful.

NICE!! I think antique books are so much prettier and interesting than the modern books of today. Old books make me want to pick one up and read.

Wouldn't you love to find this book in a garage sale or something, for a small amount? You could frame most of the pages. Great book.
