Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver inkstand has a plain serpentine shaped form.


The stand is surmounted by the original hallmarked detachable ornament of a child sitting in thought on a stack of books, with a book on this lap.


The figure is holding in his right hand a candle holder lamp encircled with water leaf ornamentation to the capital.


This exceptional piece retains the original hallmarked lobed baluster shaped inkpot, fitted with a hallmarked hinged cover surmounted with a chased decorated scrolling finial.


The inkstand is supported by four impressive bracket feet embellished with pierced, embossed and chased rocaille style ornamentation.


The underside of the inkstand bears the ‘lozenge mark’ which certifies the patent of this piece on 7th December 1847 with the UK Patent Office.


This impressive inkstand was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Edward, John & William Barnard.


Date: 1847

Condition


This impressive antique inkstand is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The embossed and chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the stand and to the surface of the stack of books to the figural ornament, and part hallmarks to the cover of the inkpot and underside of the inkpot are all very clear; the date letter to the stand is rubbed but remains very clear to the other set of full hallmarks and inkpot cover.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this example of Victorian silverware.
