This is a rare inkwell made of porcelain in England Stoke on Trent. It is the DeVon Lusterine Royal George pattern.
The inkwell has a fan shape and is decorated with mystical creatures in lustrous colors on cobalt blue. There is an old sailing ship in multiple colors and soaring birds. A gold trim surrounds the entire plate. The cap that covers the inkwell has golden geometric trim. The set consists of the plate and pen rest, the glass ink well and the cap. The piece measures 9" long by 6" deep and 3" high. The condition is very good with overall crazing and some loss of gold.
