An English ink monitor’s school tray with china pots advertising “W. Edwards Patentee London”, late 19th - early 20th century. All of the pots have the same advertising and it is nice to see a tray with a complete set of ink pots. The wooden tray, painted black, has brass-carrying handles and holds 16 pots. On one side of the tray, there is a barely discernable reference to “room” followed by an even less discernable number. All of the pots have the same advertising. They have undergone their fair share of knocks throughout their years of service as there is plenty of wear to pots that includes ink-related staining. It comes in original, well-used and acceptable condition. No restoration.
Size: Tray measures 17” x 8 ½”. Diameter of pots at the top is 2 ½” and 1 ½” in height.
