    Are there any hallmarks? Where did it come from? - country, I mean. How long is it, please? I'm not the best person to ask about this, since I sometimes have a hard time distinguishing between a letter opener and a page turner. : D

    You have a page turner here, probably European
    They used these because books were very valuable at the time, and they didn't want to get the pages dirty
