Victorian Papier Mache Blotter Hand Painted!

This fine, rare antique letter blotter is made in papier mache and has lovely hand-painted flowers and Mother of Pearl decoration!

The painting has intricate details of three flowers and foliage. Some of the leaves and flowers are inlaid Mother of Pearl. I adore the speckled Mother of Pearl inlay swirling all around the flowers with curly gilt accents! This type of decoration is typical of Jennings & Bettridge, a maker of fine accessories in the mid-1800's. Although unsigned, it could very well be attributed to that company.

A ribbon holds the two panels together and inside is felt. Both of these material appear to be replacements. The blotter measures 9" X 6" X 1/2".

It is in very good condition, especially for its age of approximately 164 years! There is crazing and a couple of rough edges plus surface wear on the backside. Perfect home decor to display in a cabinet!

Gorgeous!
