This exceptional antique George III sterling silver desk standish has a navette shaped form onto four bracket feet.

This inkstand is encompassed with an applied thread decorated border, in addition to the contemporary engraved initials 'WW'.

The rim of the body of the sterling silver inkstand is ornamented with a paralleling applied reed decorated border.

The internal wirework style frame of the stand is divided into three rounded supports.

Each internal compartment retains the original rounded glass bottles with cut glass ornamentation in addition to impressive scalloped bases.

The ink, pen/quill and pounce bottles retain the original plain silver cylindrical mounts fitted with push fit hallmarked covers.

The rim of each circular cover is encircled with applied moulded borders and bears the corresponding functional pierced decorated holes.

This large silver ink standish was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Henry Chawner.

Such original ladies examples, in perfect condition, are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
