Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver inkwell has a plain circular capstan* form.


The surface of this unusual silver capstan inkwell is plain and unembellished.


This impressive inkwell is fitted with a plain hallmarked cylindrical cover which features a gent's pocket / fob watch.


The anterior surface of the cover secures with a bayonet fitting and features a velet lining to the interior; when removed this allows access to the watch held within.


This impressive watch has a manual eight-day movement with a winder/crown to the top within a ring loop; the timepiece is in full working order.


The black enamel dial of the watch is encircled with applied circular mother of pearl Roman numeral hour markers and incorporates a seconds subdial.


This sterling silver inkwell is fitted with a removable silver liner.


The weighted base retains the original leatherette to the underside.


* A capstan is a revolving waisted cylindrical component of nautical machinery used to wind rope and/or cables.


Date: 1930
