This is a five pieces Arts & Crafts ensemble desk set etched with a hops pattern. The set consists of a pen wipe brush, inkwell, rocking blotter, letter opener, and desk pad blotter corners. The corner pieces have an incised mark "Made by Marshall Field & Co. 9/25." Marshall Field was the first American department store to establish European buying offices in the 1900s in Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, and London. They also had a purchasing office in Tokyo.
It is rare to find these pieces in a complete set, much more common to see them as single items. There is some rubbing to the gilding on the pieces, and the glass insert in the inkwell is present but has a chip. The inkwell is 4" square and 4" tall. The letter opener is 9" long, the blotter corners are 4" x 4" x 5." SC.
