Lusciously French this lovely Writing Set is very Deco with it's almost crimson finish with beautifully hand applied Parrots and foliage. The piece measures 9" x 3 1/2" x 4" in height. There are two ink wells, a small central compartment for stamps?..... and a Wax Seal Stamp....still blank.....probably there were two of these seals originally.....comes with one nib pen. Just a little wear to the gilt end handles and one chip off base stand....otherwise just lovely. Marked to base ...ALADIN, FRANCE.
NOTE: Dated as Deco period but could be earlier.
Stunning piece for a Ladies writing bureau.
