This heavy and capacious Victorian glass and silver square inkwell with its unusual wrythen design was made by John Grinsell and Son in Birmingham in 1893. It has survived well over the years and was most likely a cabinet piece. The unusual combination of wrythen glass, the swirling silver lid and the well's weight and size (120mm) means that it will stand well on any desk and hold its own in any inkwell collection.

This Victorian black leather bound stationary box is the exceptional quality you would expect from Jenner & Knewstub. They were suppliers of stationery boxes, jewellery boxes, dressing cases and similar items of quality from premises originally located at 33 St.James’s Street and then later, in 1862, at 66 Jermyn Street. London. I believe this example dates from the early 20thc. Their work was displayed at the International Exhibition of 1862 and at the International Exposition in Paris in 1878. They obtained many royal warrants including those of the Imperial Family of France, the Russian royal family, Queen Victoria and supplied the principal courts of Europe. The box interior has a number of divisions including one that comfortably holds today’s correspondence cards. It measures 6.5 inches (165mm) high x 8.75 inches (222mm wide) x 4.5 inches (114mm) deep. There is some wear to the base from being moved from place to place but otherwise it is in very good condition with a clean exterior and interior.  An exceptional piece of writing equipment that will grace any desk, hall table or collection.

Complete Portable Wood Desk Stand with Two Inkwells and Drawer

£220.00

Add to basket

This attractive portable wood desk stand comes complete with two glass inkwells, an integral front drawer and a firm stylized carry handle. I believe it dates from the early part of the 20thc. The two square glass inkwells fit well into their recesses so appear true to the piece. You will note there is a slight “play” on the hinge, most noticeably on the left hand one but the hinges themselves are secure.  It sits well on its four “bun” feet. It is a good size but not too large measuring 300mm by 200mm. The wood is walnut however the wood may have faded over time as you will see that the internal colour of the drawer is much darker. Nonetheless it is in good condition and a very tactile and pleasing item that will be a pleasure to own and use.
