A complete writing desk set in the Coalbrookdale style with lavishly encrusted flowers, consisting of a tray, an inkwell with inner liner and double cover, a pen holder, and a blot holder.


This item is sold "As Found" (A/F) as it has some repairs; this is reflected in the price. The repairs are sympathetic but oldfashioned and the foot of this item is held up by a stand-in; if desired this can be redone invisibly by our excellent associated restorer at true cost, however this could take a few months.


Pattern no. unknown

Year: ca 1830-1835

Size: 34cm X 21cm (13.5” X 8.25”)

Condition: the base has been broken and restored with improvised foot underneath; some typical small losses to encrusting



Provenance: the Murray Pollinger Collection


Please note that this item can only be shipped in late June 2023.
