  • Age Early 19th Century
  • Condition The inkwell presents well and is offered without loss or restoration. There is some damage to the removable central inkwell with a repair to a break in the lid. There is also some cracking to the base extending up the edges of the stand. These are barely visible from above and despite a few other cracks around the body the inkwell looks stunning. Certainly a wonderful and rare display piece although priced in consideration of its condition and a wonderful addition to any serious collection!   View More Details
