Description

A truly unusual and quite spectacular Victorian inkstand made from cast polished bronze standing on cast reticulated feet. The gallery around the back is also pierced or reticulated featuring a mythical figure to the centre.
The base is enamelled in a lovely rich terracotta colour engraved with a scroll motif and below a lovely oval belt and buckle motif.
There are two polished brass supports to rest a dip pen and two circular shaped cradles to accommodate the unusual circular inkwells. They are made from threaded glass and topped with hinged brass lids.
A most unusual piece ready to adorn the very finest of desk-tops in excellent condition having been professionally cleaned by our silversmith; Victorian in era dating to c.1870.
The footprint spans 10" x 8 1/2" and 4" tall at the rear; each inkwell measures 3" in diameter x 3 1/2" tall.
