This beautiful desk set in in great condition. Really good Patina and a great Silver overlay design of a bird on a branch. Great Subject.
The set includes an inkwell (with original glass insert which is capped with a bronze lid) with an incorporated pen rest. An ink blotter with old blotting paper, a combination letter holder and perpetual calendar with paper inserts.
A fine example of the Arts and Crafts Movement combined with a great subject, Bird on Branches. The blotter also has a great shape. The condition is excellent. Great Patina, I have left the cleaning of the silver up to the new owner.
