This is a charming writing accessory from a previous age. It is of sterling silver and likely to be of American origin as it is marked ‘Sterling’ with a crown. The handle is of decorative silver passing to a shaped wire holder for the blue revolving cylinder blotter. There are signs of use of the blotter with some ink marks but otherwise its condition is very good for age. This would make a lovely addition to a collection of more unusual collectible writing accessories. Length 4 ins (10cm), width of blotter 2.5 ins (6.3cm). Weight 26 grams.
