A most handsome late Victorian Inkstand / Double Inkwell, made from hefty silverplate with two wonderful cut crystal inkwells.

The base stands on four original bun feet with a beautifully shaped outline with a raised border incorporating shell motifs. There are two supports to the front of the desk set, for resting one's dip pen.

The top is marked EPNS for Electro-Nickel Plated Silver and the underside has the full makers mark for the Birmingham silversmith, JOHNSON, DURBAN & CO. LTD., this mark was only used from 1897 to 1904 allowing us to date this piece accurately.

The two heavy crystal inkwells are an unusual "pyramid" shape with fitted circular collars and hinged square lids. The underside of each is deeply hand cut in the ever-popular hobnail design.

A beautiful piece in excellent condition, measuring 10" x 8" and standing 3 1/4" tall. Each of the inkwells have a base measuring 2 1/2" square.
