Georgian, George III, Silver Inkstand. Features two pen recesses and three cut glass bottles for ink and pounce. Of shaped rectangular form with a beaded border. Raised on four ornate bracket feet of open work form. Three pierced bottle holders, also with beaded detail, hold the three cut glass bottles. The inkstand features the crest of what appears to be a griffin. This is a very fine example of a George III inkstand.
Hallmarked to the underside of the stand for London 1778 by William Plummer. The three pierced silver bottle holders are each part hallmarked with the lion passant. The bottle caps and collars are unmarked.
In excellent condition with light surface wear commensurate with age. There is no glass damage and the bottles would appear to be original and matching. A little clouding of the silver on the inkstand base.
Approximate hallmarked silver weight is 618 grams or 19.8 troy ounces.
Approximate total weight is 1.264 kilos.
Approximate dimensions are 25 cm length, 16 cm width and 10 cm height.
