ROYAL - H.R.H. The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowden. An extremely rare George III Travelling Inkstand made most probably in London circa 1780.


The rectangular hinged wooden casket is covered in shagreen and displays a velvet lined cover. The base has a beautifully made fitted silver interior, with a silver topped inkwell and sander, as well as three nibs and a reeded pen, which the nibs fit into.

The Inkwell was originally sold in the famous sale of a selection of Princess Margarets belongings at Christies, in June 2006, after her death. The Inkstand comes with a leather bound Certificate of Provenance, stamped with her personal Royal Seal and signed by her son, Viscount Linley. Personal belongings of the Royal family seldom come onto the market, and this is a rare opportunity to acquire something which was previously owned and used by the sister of Queen Elizabeth II. Two photographs are shown on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, firstly on the occasion of her marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowden, and secondly the 100th Birthday of her mother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
