Sterling Silver 'Bell' Inkwell - Antique George V (1928)


An exceptional, fine and impressive, large antique George V English sterling silver inkwell; part of our antique diverse ornamental silverware collection

SKU A9406

This exceptional antique George V English sterling silver inkwell has been realistically modelled in the form of a bell.

The surface of this impressive antique inkwell is plain and unembellished, with moulded segments to the lower portion replicating the details of the bell's bead line.

This large silver inkwell is fitted with an impressive hinged hallmarked sterling silver cover modelled in the form of the bell's shoulders and crown.

The upper plateau of the cover is surmounted with an angular sterling silver handle/bell canons.

The cover opens to reveal a circular sunken well and removable ceramic ink liner.

The interior surface of the cover retains the original gilding.

The weighted base bears a leatherette covering to the underside.

Maker: Unknown

Date: 1928

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

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body, in addition to part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear; the maker's mark has wear and is illegible.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this large silver inkwell.
