An extremely rare George III Ladys Inkstand made in London in 1777 by Burrage Davenport.


This very rare piece stands on four claw and ball feet. The oval base displays a raised bright cut border and a beautiful heart shaped carrying handle engraved with bright cutting and a single flower head. This was a design of handle which was used in the workshops of Davenport. The two circular bottle cages have beaded rims and are pierced with vertical pails. The cages are held in position with a skewer mechanism underneath and can be removed for cleaning. The two original bottles have silver covers with beaded rims, the sander being pierced with stylised flower heads. Again, these small inkstands are very rare and are usually made by Samuel Meriton or Burrage Davenport.

Length of base: 3.9 inches, 9.75cm.

Width of base: 2.75 inches, 6.88cm.

Height: 2 inches, 5cm.
