This inkstand is fitted with a hallmarked gallery, embellished with impressive pierced scrolling foliate and floral ornamentation, incorporating a shield shaped vacant cartouche to the anterior side.


The shaped, incurved rim of the body of the sterling silver inkstand is ornamented with a paralleling applied gadroon decorated border.


The internal frame of the stand is divided into four compartments with pierced decorated dividers reflecting the same design to that of the body.

The underside of each bottle bears a cut glass star motif.

Condition


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

There are natural fire marks to the underside of the base, as to be expected in keeping with age.

The ink bottles are in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the gallery and bottle mounts, in addition to part to the ink bottle covers and underside of this large silver desk standish are all very clear; the maker's marks have some minor wear in keeping with age, but remain legible.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique glass and silverware.
