This inkstand is fitted with a hallmarked gallery, embellished with impressive pierced simplified leaf and floral decoration incorporating a vacant circular cartouche.
The body of the inkstand is ornamented with a gadroon decorated border to the rim.
The stand incorporates a plain sunken pen well to the front in addition to two ink bottle receivers, ornamented with further applied gadroon decorated borders.
This antique inkstand is supported by four volute scrolling feet with impressive leaf and bead decorated trifurcating sockets.
The internal compartments retain the original square cut glass glass ink bottles.
The ink bottles are fitted with the original plain hallmarked silver cylindrical mounts with hinged hallmarked covers.
Each ink bottle cover is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest depicting a demi boar rampant with an arrow piercing the chest*.
The covers are further ornamented with a gadroon style decorated border to the rim.
* This crest pertains to the family of Bowles, or a branch thereof and its variant spelling of Bolles or Boles.
