ANTIQUE SILVER PLATE & GLASS INKWELL STAND DESK SET ~ PAIR OF SHOES QUILL HOLDER

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A SUPERB, AND GOOD SIZED ANTIQUE SILVER PLATE & GLASS INKWELL / DESK COMPANION.

A LATE VICTORIAN ITEM, BY THE QUITE RARE MAKER ' SILVER & FLEMING ' OF LONDON.

A WELL MADE PIECE, WITH HEAVY QUALITY GLASS INKWELLS, AND ALL IN ALL IN GREAT ORDER & CONDITION.

AS YOU WILL OBVIOUSLY SEE FROM THE PHOTOS THERE IS A FAIR AMOUNT OF 'BLACK' AREAS WHERE THE PLATE HAS WORN. THIS IS BLACK AS I BELIEVE IT IS SILVER ON BRITANNIA METAL.

APART FROM THIS WEAR, IT IS A WONDERFUL PIECE, AND CERTAINLY WELL WORTH HAVING PLATED IF YOU DESIRE TO.

THE 'OCTAGONAL' OR 8 SIDED BASE IS SUPERB, WITH ARCHED CURVES TO EVERY SIDE. DECORATED WITH A FINE 'STEPPED' EDGE ALL THE WAY ROUND, AND FINISHED WITH A NICE 'BEAD' PATTERN BORDER.

IT STANDS UPON 4 'BUN' FEET, AND IN THE CENTRE ARE 2 FENCED AREAS FOR THE INKWELLS TO SIT WITHIN. INBETWEEN THESE IS A RAISED PART, AND ON TOP OF THIS THERE IS A PAIR OF OLD SHOES, ONE FACING TO THE LEFT & THE OTHER TO THE RIGHT.

THIS IS WHERE THE 'QUILLS' WOULD BE HELD WHEN NOT IN USE. A FABULOUS IDEA & DESIGN.

THERE IS ALSO A 'DISHED' AREA TO THE FRONT & BACK OF THE STAND, THIS IS FOR PENS TO SIT IN.

CONDITION :

IT IS A SUPERB QUALITY PIECE, WITH NO REPAIRS AT ALL. IT SHINES UP SUPERBLY IN PLACES, APART FROM THE ABOVE MENTIONED ISSUES. THERE IS A SLIGHT 'BOW' TO THE CENTRE, BUT BARELY NOTICABLE & IS MOST LIKELY CAUSED BY THE WEIGHT OF THE HEAVY GLASS OVER THE YEARS.

BOTH CUT GLASS INKWELLS ARE SUPERB. SAME PLATE WEAR TO LIDS, BUT ALL AREAS OF GLASS TO THE OUTSIDE ARE WONDERFUL , CHIP & DAMAGE FREE . SOME SLIGHT MARKS TO THE INSIDES FROM USE, BUT BOTH ARE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.

A WONDERFUL & UNUSUAL COLLECTABLE PIECE.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

MEASURES 22 CM WIDE & 17 CM DEEP. EACH INKWELL STANDS AT 6 CM TALL & 5 CM WIDE. WEIGHS AN IMPRESSIVE = 785 GRAMS IN TOTAL, WITH EACH INKWELL WEIGHING 192 GRAMS.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • STAMPED TO BASE WITH A 'STAFFORDSHIRE KNOT' PICTORIAL IMAGE, WITH THE INITIALS 'AMS' AROUND IT. THIS IS THE MAKERS MARK FOR 'SILVER & FLEMING' OF LONDON
  • A VERY RARE MAKER , THAT ONLY MADE WARES FROM 1884 - 1898
  • '302' PROBABLY A PRODUCTION / DESIGN NUMBER

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS {AND I HAVE TAKEN PLENTY} SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT AN UNUSUAL PIECE THIS IS.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT. A GOOD DESK COMPANION STAND WITH HEAVY QUALITY GLASS INKWELLS, BY A VERY RARE MAKER, A PIECE THAT WOULD PLEASE ANY ANTIQUE / SILVER PLATE COLLECTOR.

HAPPY TO SEND WORLDWIDE, BUT PLEASE CHECK FIRST. AS ITS QUITE HEAVY IT WILL NOT BE CHEAP TO SOME OVERSEAS DESTINATIONS.
