A sexy image by Gil Elvgren who designed this early plastic letter opener entitled Here's an Eye Opener!

This was produced by Brown & Bigelow between 1958-1960, and this one is in unused mint condition including the original sleeve on card stock. This fun 3D letter opener, is conceived in over the top curvy detail and measures 8. 5" x 2. 5" at the widest point. The folding sleeve which creatively "undresses" Ellen our pin-up model measures 8. 5" x 7. 25" when opened & is in excellent shape with no tears or visible toning.

The medallion she is holding above her head has the name of an individual business in this case from "Johnnys - Signs and Neon" this was manufactured & used as an advertising customer giveaway.

Text Ellen the Eye Opener:

Yes, sir! When there's a job to be done, a service to perform, or a need to be met, we are ready for action. And when it's time for a smile, we like to erase those frown lines with something on the light side, for all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

So meet Ellen, the Eye Opener, a girl who will appeal to your mail instincts as she opens your mail, let her serve to remind you of us. Treat her nice she's a swell gal."
