Here is an amazingly rare set of a 200-year-old complete inkstand in next to perfect condition. This justifiably popular pattern 967 is one of Spode’s glories, introduced in about 1807 and immediately popular—and it has remained so. It is based on the Imari palette of predominantly cobalt blue, iron red and gold, and it was used by the factory on numerous items of dinnerware and on many purely decorative items such as this inkstand. The tray is of rectangular form standing on four gilded paw feet, the center molded with circular frames to hold the two ink pots and the slightly larger matching pounce pot, all with their original covers. The stand is eight inches long and, in addition to the handwritten SPODE mark with the pattern number on the underside, also holds a small painter’s mark next to one of the feet—again, a rare touch. There is a bit of wear to one end of the edge of the tray. No damage. A popular pattern, surpassingly rare in this superlative condition.
