Antique Mappin & Webb Solid Silver & Turkish Willow Onyx Inkwell, London 1912 (Code 2070)

  • £16500


Description

A very stylish inkwell by Mappin & Webb. The inkwell is in Sterling silver and is hallmarked. The striated Turkish willow onyx hexagonal base is very attractive and sets of the silver very nicely. The cap is weighted so opens easily and stays open when pushed back and there is a small finger grip. Internally there is a base metal liner which is perhaps copper or zinc (now patinated to black) and there is a further later added removable liner in plastic which is handy should you wish to use the item as an inkwell.

The main hallmarks to the body are rubbed through decades of polishing, but the repeat mark on cap gives the date letter for 1912, and there is also the Mappin & Webb stamped mark to the reverse. Additionally there are etched initials to the front skirt of 'W.B' although these are also now much softened from polishing. A quality piece of desk equipment and beautifully stylish with the Turkish onyx and silver combination.



Condition

Main hallmarks rubbed through decades of use and polishing. Minor wear to the onyx. Small indent to rear of the inkwell.
