Toledo daggers were a common form of souvenir for nineteenth century gentlemen touring Europe.  They come in many forms and this example has a cast gilt bronze figure of a shrouded spectre with a snake entwined around his feet. 

A perfect paper knife for any gentleman's study.

Apologies but we are unable to export this item. This is a probate item.
