English sterling silver desk tray double inkwell and associated silver letter opener. The tray bears the characteristic sterling silver hallmarks of James Dixon and Sons Sheffield England with unknown date letter P. The two glass or crystal inkwell bears London hallmarks with makers marks JAC or similar.
The glass inkwells are cut and shaped to fit into the square cutouts in tray and fit well into raised edge border with only a little leeway. Unsure if replacements but if so then expertly done and fit well. The inkwell tray measures approximately 8 1/2 inches from claw foot to claw foot.The accompanying letter opener measures approximately 9 1/4 inches. The hallmarks on the letter opener are very rubbed and unsure if sterling or silver plate but in overall good condition with no monogram.
The tray itself with no inkwells well 234 grams. The tray is marked on bottom an impressed pattern? Please note beautiful claw animal feet and gadrooned border edge with shell corners. The lids to the inkwell are marked with Lion Passant and Panther for London Sterling.
Overall good condition as described and photographed above with minor wear and imperfections from age and normal use. Would further benefit from polishing which I have not attempted. Please examine all photos for size and measurement and see above condition report. Do not hesitate to request additional images or information. SterlingDon is at your Service!
