    Description:
    c1860 Silver Plate Stunning Ink Stand. This is truly a stunning Standish made in or around the 1860's by one of the great silversmith of their time "Thomas Wilkinson" This wonderful item was presentment to "Miss Mellor" a lady of some standing in 1876 by the local Congregational Church of HOLYWELL GREEN, Calderdale, West Yourkshire sadly this was demolished around 1978 and most of its contents were sold off and went to America. Miss Mellor took bile classes in the church for a number of years, the minister at the time was Rev. Benjamin Wilkinson (1871-1882) he sadly pass away in 1893, not before moving to Durham in 1882 to Barnard Castle. I think the Mellor family we local mill owners and the head of the Mellor house married a widow of the Shaw family that built the church.
