Description 

4 7/8" Overall, marked A G Shaver patented, carved bone handle has a few minor cracks, Here is some info I found on them Exhibited in 1850 and 1860. (Sixth and Ninth Exhibitions of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Association, Boston, 1850, 1860, listed without an illustration). Advertised 1860 and 1861 in Harper's Weekly and elsewhere without an illustration According to an 1860 advertisement, "The blade is curved upwards, with sharp oval edge for erasing blots, marks, &c., from paper. Convexed on the lower side, to give a fine polish and finish to the erased parts. The curve between the blade and the shank has a keen edge for cutting away the wood of the pencil, and the small serrated groove in the blade gives a neatly finished point to the lead. Some three or four different sizes and styles are manufactured, some of them with ornamental handles of ivory and mother-of-pearl." (Vanity Fair, Oct. 20, 1860) A burnisher was used to lay down the fibers raised by the erasing blade.
