A rare George III Inkstand, of small size, most probably for a Lady or child. Made in London in 1793 by John Robins.

This unusual piece has a boat shaped stand, with raised sides and carrying handles decorated with reeding. The base stands on four panel feet and the three circular bottle cages have Classical column supports and are also decorated with reeding. The three cut glass bottles have a waisted form and silver tops, also decorated with reeding. This piece is in quite excellent condition and is fully marked on the base. The very unusual shape and size indicates that it must have been for the use of a Lady or a child and examples of this design seldom appear on the market.

Length: 7 inches, 17.5cm.
Width: 3 inches, 7.5cm.
Height, to the top of the bottles: 3 inches, 7.5 cm.
Weight: 6oz.
