Description

It is always nice to come across any antique piece of woodenware that is a little different in some way or another. Though I have seen quite a few combination desk stands that featured a dished pen tray to the front with a rear box with a pair on inkpots either side I have never come across the likes of this example with such a small box that is attached to a lid with generous additional and useful storage space beneath. The entire item is in very good condition and is an excellent example of the technique of faux graining. The applied brassware is all original and complete and features attractive incised patterns that are more intricate than most examples of the style and period. Large dished pen area to the front with the nice finishing and practical touch of the brassware that extends up the sides at both ends. There is a small degree of wear to the centre but it does not detract from the item and should be good for many a year to come. The matching pair of inkpots are in very good condition and though they fit well I question whether they are original as I would have expected glass or brass hinged lids. The small box would perhaps have been for storing stamps or sealing wax or perhaps nibs. The storage space beneath is ideal for storing a wide range of stationery accessories. The item came complete with a solid brass stamp box, a small ruler and two old dip nib pens…..I have added another pen, a pencil, some pieces of sealing wax and a few spare nibs of different styles. A most attractive and practical item that would look splendid on a desk or hall table. RECOMMENDED .
