Condition


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

There is some minor discolouration to the exterior and interior of the original box, as to be expected in keeping with age and use.

The Chinese hallmarks struck to the surface of the underside of the stand and inkwell are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique Asian silverware.
