ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 19thC JENNENS & BETTRIDGE PAPIER MACHE DESK STAND & INKWELL

Description:

A lovely antique early Victorian English Papier Mache double inkwell desk stand by Jennens and Bettridge, dating to circa 1850.

The desk stand has two penrests, a small lidded recess in the centre, flanked by two molded glass inkwells with black painted wooden lids, and stands on four small ball feet. The floral decoration of this piece is composed of inlaid abalone shell pearl heightened with gilding. The reverse bears impressed marks, "JENNENS & BETTRIDGE BIRMm", under a Crown.

Jennens and Bettridge (Aaron Jennens and T.H. Bettridge) were highly regarded for producing high quality papier mâché wares, with production flourishing between 1815-1864. They acquired the workshops of Henry Clay in 1816, famous for producing Japanned wares for George III and the Prince of Wales.

Their original premises were in Birmingham and they started a London branch at 3 West Halkin Street, Belgravia in 1837, with later offices established in both Paris and New York.
