Asuperb and very interesting antique sterling silver mounted travelling inkwell for the collector with a more unusually designed mount, being of earlier manufacture than most, and with a very nice period glass body with deep star cut base.

Maker's mark: TW.
Excellent antique condition,no dents, splits or repairs, and no chips to the glass, only usual scratches consistent with age and use. Please note some degree of perishing to the cork or rubber lining of the cap but even after 200 years it has remained water tight! Top quality gauge of silver.5cm x 5cm (2" x 2") and 3cm deep (1 1/8") Weight:175grams. A fabulous rare early example for a collection.
