This very elegant piece was made by Thomas Bradbury and Sons Ltd, London 1910. The inkstand is substantial and impressing although it is still practical today. The front edge of the piece is scalloped in design. It is lower that the other three sides in order that access can be gained to the pen recess and inkwells. The tops of both inkwells have the same "rope" type pattern on them as the edge of the inkstand itself. The top's are fully hallmarked as Silver and with the same hallmarks that are found on the body of the stand itself. The inkwells are well made and of substantial weight. There is no crack's, chips, or restoration to either inkwell. A deep sometrical pattern is engraved in each of the inkwell and they weigh approx 400 grams each. They sit on the inkstand in sectioned off areas that have a pierced decoration. These appear to be fixed to the stand by silver cap top nut's that are themselves hallmarked.
