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.

Commemorative Letter Opener - Waterman and Mordan - Chester 1908

Commemorative Letter Opener - Waterman and Mordan - Chester 1908

£550.00

This rare silver letter opener/bookmark was made for Waterman by pencil manufacturers and silversmiths Sampson Mordan & Co. and carries a hallmark for Chester, England 1908. You will see that the inscription states “Waterman’s Fountain Pen February 12th 1884 – 1909 plus the “Ideal” logo. It was made to commemorate Waterman’s 25th anniversary of trading. Waterman pens were little known in England before 1900 when Messrs. L.&C. Hardtmuth of Golden Lane, London became the sole agents, advertising them to the trade as “The Most Satisfactory Fountain Pens to Stock…”. In 1910, for political and public relations reasons, Mr. L.G. Sloan became head of “Hardtmuth’s newly built emporium, known as Koh-i-noor House in Kingsway (London) from where Waterman pens were dispatched  to worldwide markets.” Sloan had a close friend (Harry Lambert Symonds) who worked for Sampson Mordan & Co. which explains the choice of silversmith. The “pig” design had been used by Mordan since at least 1898 as it appears in an illustrated catalogue of that date. Why Waterman chose the “pig” rather than the “owl” – another Mordan favourite – is unknown.

It appears that this delightful letter opener/bookmark was created to send as a commemorative gift to retailers and prestige customers. I have seen one further example in its original Hardtmuth presentation case. This example, without its case and in good condition with some minor age wear (as can be seen in the montage) is priced accordingly. It measures 120mm long by 14mm deep. The pig stands 20mm high. 

A rare piece of fountain pen history.

Complete Portable Wood Desk Stand with Two Inkwells and Drawer

£220.00
In stock

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.
