An 18thC Continental antique brass quill pen holder and inkwell.

Used by a Scribe - a person who copies out documents, especially one employed to do this before printing was available en masse.

Of elongated form, the holder has a hinged lid (with a hanging hoop) at one end that opens to reveal a void interior. Joined to the holder is an inkwell. Again with a hinged lid and decorative scratch carving to the main body. The holder also bears an impressed maker's mark although this has not been identified.

Condition - As per the images. There is surface wear and some oxidation to the brass is evident which is commensurate with age. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Length 27.5 cm (10 3/4")
