Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver inkwell has a circular shaped domed form.


The body of this exceptional antique inkwell is embellished with impressive pierced and embossed scrolling leaf decoration, accented with pensile, baluster style bead motifs.


The ornamentation to the body incorporates five oval cartouches; four are ornamented with an embossed male profile: two bearded males and two in a soldier's helmet.


The cartouche to the anterior surface of the inkwell features the contemporary engraved crest of a stag encompassed with a garter and the motto 'God and my Honour'.


The intricate sterling silver body of the inkwell incorporates five conical shaped pen receivers.


The swept waisted upper portion of this antique inkwell is fitted with a hinged hallmarked cover, ornamented with engraved simplified leaf decoration.


The cover is surmounted with an impressive embossed three-dimensional bust of a male figure in robes.


This antique inkwell retains the original and substantial red cranberry glass ink bottle liner, with a cut glass star motif to the underside; the cranberry glass liner is highly desirable.


This exceptional silver and glass inkwell is supported by five swept feet, ornamented with a continuation of scrolling leaf and circular motif decoration from the body.


This exceptional example of Victorian silverware, crafted by the renowned London silversmith Joseph Angell II, is the finest example of its type


Date: 1850

The embossed decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the ink bottle, in additional to the part hallmarks to the underside of the base and interior of the cover are all very clear.
