Beautiful mid Victorian papier mache inkstand or desk stand of English origin. This piece is made of papier mache with crystal inkwells, and has mother of pearl inlay.
It is a double ink stand containing two crystal inkwells, separated by a covered stamp box. The inkwells have hinged crystal lids trimmed in brass They measure 1 5/8" square. The covered compartment at the center has a removable lid that has an inlaid mother of pearl border design. It measures 2 1/4" square.
The inkstand itself has a measurement of 9 1/2" by 7 1/2". It has lovely mother of pearl inlays with a pretty hand painted floral design in the pen tray.
There are four oblong shaped feet. It is in good antique condition, with only a few minor nicks in the papier mache. The inkwells have no chips.
