Very Rare Silver Travelling Inkwell Pounce Pot Sander Wafer Seal Box Etui Lamp For Sale

Very Rare Silver Travelling Inkwell Pounce Pot Sander Wafer Seal Box Etui Lamp

This is for an incredibly rare ifnot totally unique travelling hanging inkwell from around 1800. It is a fabulous thing, solidsilver and shaped as a lamp with integral glass inkwell inside and little removable pounce pot and wafer box underneath. Every so often you get a piece you know you will never see again, and this is it. Whoever owned this was of the higher wealthier classes, the more usualtravelling inkwells,writingetui's andpennersof the day were made from horn, wood brass...etc, you can find nice silver penner's from the 1700s and little silver lock down from around 1800...but thisis something completely different and unique. Ithinkit was specially made, the silver has been wrought around the glass bottle inside, it is not possible to remove it and it opens and divides by way of little bayonet fixings that have to be swivelled to one side both on the lid of the inkwell and the base that pulls out. The base is thetwo little storage pots, the wafer box is on top with the little pounce pot againswivelling out from underneath. The large ring on top is so it can be hung from the belt as was the custom at that time. It is in absolute excellent condition with no damage to it anywhere, everything works as it should do, there are no cracks or chips in the glass and no dings or dents in the silver...it is exactly as you would want to find it.....Rare chance!!!!.It measures 31mm in diameterand stands 95mm tall.
