This fine antique George V sterling silver travelling inkwell has a plain square shaped form.

The surface of this piece is embellished with impressive panels of engine turned decoration incorporating a circular cartouche to the cover.

The cartouche is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved ducal coronet above the monogrammed initials ‘RMC’.

The underside of the inkwell is plain and unembellished.

This impressive inkwell is fitted with a plain angular, hallmarked lever style catch; when pivoted this allows access to the push fit catch releasing the hallmarked hinged cover and revealing the original gilded interior.

The interior of the box features a gilded domed cover which when opened allows access to the original removable glass ink pot.

This impressive inkwell was crafted by the London silversmith and toilet/dressing set specialist Charles Henry Dumenil.

Date: 1920


This antique travelling inkwell is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The interior has some minor blemishes and discolouration to the gilding.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and part hallmarks to the surface of the cover and lever style catch are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
