An attractive antique Georgian sterling silver travelling inkwell.

A scarce design being fully silver with no glass base as is more commonly found.

It is a cylindrical shape with a silver screw down cap, the front is engraved with an interesting heraldic motif of an armoured arm holding a sword, the sword piercing the head of a dragon.

A very interesting heraldic crest to research.

The inkwell is fully hallmarked for the George IV era, it does not possess a town mark but is London, it has the bust of King George, lion passant and date letter for 1829, maker TW possibly Thomas Whimbush or Thomas Whitehead.

Good used condition overall with surface wear and signs of use, there is a crack to the top of the lid and a small piece of silver absent from this area with a tiny loose section on the rim edge, see photos.

Approx measurements:
2" height
5.5" circumference
Weighs approx 60.52 grams
