19th Century Vintage French Wood & Brass Inkstand Scale, Ink Stand For Sale
Vintage c 1870 French Wood & Brass Inkstand Scale, Ink Stand
This unusual inkstand dates from the 1800's, probably around 1870 to 1890. The base is made of wood. There are two glass ink wells in good shape; these are the originals that fit into the stand. There is a brass scale and a weight for what was in all likelihood the standard maximum weight for a letter.
This is a rare and beautiful piece. I originally purchased it at the Hotel Drouot in Paris--the government run sale house--almost twenty years ago, and paid over $200 then.
The inkstand weighs about 1 pound 9 ounces. It is about 11 inches wide and almost 4 3/4 inches deep. (F150)
This piece is very decorative.I have price on this wonderful French period inkstand, just a very modest price of $275.00, which is a small fraction of its minimal current value.
We have an extensive personal collection of art nouveau and art deco items which we sell on . All were purchased in France , and brought back by us over many years to the United States.
And, of course, I combine shipping when you win multiple lots so as to save you some money.
