Georgian, George III, Silver Inkstand. Of rectangular form with a gadrooned border and raised on four paw feet. The three bottle holders are of pierced, or open work, form.
The underside of the inkstand is hallmarked for London 1762 by William Robertson. Two of the three bottle caps are hallmarked for London 1796; the third is not hallmarked. None of the collars, or bottle holders are hallmarked, but it is not common for holders of pierced form to be marked.
In excellent condtion with moderate surface wear commensurate with age. There are a few very minor nibbles to the glass bottles. The stand appears to be free of dents, splits or repairs. These bottle holdes would appear to be original to the inkstand.
Approximate silver weight is 614 grams or 19.7 troy ounces.
Approximate total weight is 1.188 kilos.
Approximate dimensions are 26.5 cm length, 17 cm width and 8.3 cm height.
