    Description

    Whitney Houston One-of-a-Kind Sterling Silver Tiffany & Co. Letter Opener. Engraved with the words "The Bodyguard" and Ms. Houston's initials, "W.E.H.", this one-of-a-kind sterling silver letter opener was manufactured in Italy by Tiffany & Co. Measures approximately 6.5" in length. In Fine condition, lightly tarnished. Includes a Tiffany carrying pouch. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Estate of Whitney E. Houston.

    This fantastic piece was given to Whitney as a gift by the producers of her hit debut film, The Bodyguard. The second highest grossing film of 1992, The Bodyguard was originally pitched in 1976, and was to star Diana Ross and Steve McQueen. Negotiations fell through, and after years of failed casting choices, the film found its perfect leads in Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
