Wow, what a gorgeous testimony to the lost art of writing. Imagine all of your correspondence hand written with fountain pens. You'd certainly want elegant and useful tools to help get your work accomplished. This double inkstand features a lovely female bust, two inkwells with porcelain inserts, a pen rest, and incredible details throughout. Gold gilt over bronze construction, very heavy, top quality example. Measures over 12 inches in length, or about 31cm. In excellent antique condition with no damage, some verdigris and tarnish forming in places, which will only get lovelier with time. The piece is unmarked. Circa 1870 to 1890. Note: pictures were taken in various lighting conditions, making colors vary somewhat.
