Antique Continental Silver Desk Top Pen / Pencil Stand – Dog
Out of stock
This is an interesting and unusual antique continental silver desk top pen/pencil holder.
It weighs 225 grams and is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs.
It’s in the form of a flower and leaf base with the top consisting of a dog, very much like a poodle with a heavy fur mane and at the other end a pair of wheels – the wheels and the dog have fitted mounts to hold pens or pencils and the gap between the mounts is 4″ (10 cms).
Underneath there are three hallmarks – one is a crown, the second is initials and the third looks like a name – possibly Carreras – these marks are quite difficult to make out.
It was almost certainly made in the late 19th century and it measures 8″ (20 cms) x 3 1/2″ (9 cms) x 4 1/2″ (11.5 cms) high.
