Here is an amazing Victorian era desk top set, with original box and silk lining. The metals appear to be mixed and I believe bronze, copper and some type of gunmetal steel, perhaps.

The candle holders are about 5" tall and weight nearly 1.5 lbs. The oval base tray on the inkwell is about 4 3/8" long x 3 3/8 wide, the cherubs are holding onto the round, globe like inkwell and that is about 2 7/8" tall with a porcelain ink holder inside. The pen tray is about 6 5/8" x 2" deep and 2.25" tall to top of cherubs head. I love that the tray is tilted a bit in the direction of the writer. The letter opener is 6" long. The box is 10" x 10" x 3.5".

There are no marks whatsoever on any of these pieces, nor on the box itself. My best guess is German, maybe French. The pieces have some age related wear but I don't think it was ever used. Some oxidation on the blue steel and some scratches on the envelope opener. Just a beautiful and rare set. I have spent hours searching online to no avail.
