Rare Antique Rosewood and Tunbridge Ware Travel Inkwell

This is certainly an unusual traveling inkwell with beautifully turned Rosewood still in spectacular condition.

Originating in the Georgian town of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, visitors began buying wooden souvenirs from the woodworkers of surrounding areas such as Tonbrige and Speldhurst.

During the 1830's James Burrows developed the tessellated mosaic technique which became the most well known type of Tunbridge Ware. This piece dates to around 1860.

The lid screws on and off with ease and the interior reveals the original metal liner with years of dried on ink.

A most unusual desk accessory for your collection in excellent condition. The base has a diameter measuring 1 1/2" and the inkwell stands 1 7/8" tall.
