Product Details

  • We are delighted to offer this extremely rare antique Worcester porcelain inkwell decorated in the Chinese style Dragons in Compartments pattern and dating from the 18th century with this pattern recorded around 1770. The rounded inkwell comes complete with its domed lid with central finial and is moulded with reserves either side with a carrying handle and two further holders, probably for candles. The inkwell has a central ink reserve with a recessed drip edge and three holes to support quills. The inkwell is hand painted in a famille verte style with Dragons set within compartments around the body and to the lid and these are decorated in Chinese style with gilded highlights. The inkwell is not marked but is a well recorded Worcester pattern and this is a particularly rare example for any serious collector!
