Antique Bronze Desk set Inkwell, Card Tray, Letter Opener and Sceau

This antique French set is not a set that is all in one motif. Rather it is a collection of bronze items that form a charming set for a vintage desk. The pieces were all found in France and are of good quality.

They just go well together, even though they have different designs. The shoe inkwell has a white porcelain insert and the sceau has no monogram, but is signed O. The letter opener has a swan in flight and may at one point have had a signature, but it is impossible to read. The card tray has a grotesque and a shell motif.

Measurements are: vide poche: 4 ¾ by 4 ½, letter opener 8 ¾ long and 1 3/8 at its widest point, shoe inkwell 5 x 2 x 2, sceau 3 long and 7/8 diameter. The item "Antique Bronze Desk set Inkwell, Card Tray, Letter Opener and Sceau" is in sale since Wednesday, November 9, 2016.
