Victorian Bronze Gilt Inkwell Stand or Rest Jeweled
$100.00 plus shipping
This is a very ornate old Victorian piece. It appears to be bronze or brass and then has gold gilding or leaf over the top. It has what looks like 6 rubies and either 2 blue opaline or turquoise cabochon jewels. It has a pen rest on the tray and an inkwell, but the lid is missing. Still it is a lovely old piece. I don't know the maker as I can find no marks on it. It does have a screw in the bottom that look like it was added to tighten up one of the pen rests. It measures 9 inches long and 5 inches wide. The entire piece feels very sturdy and solid. It does need cleaned, but I was afraid to mess with it because of the gilding and I have no knowledge of how to do it.
