Edwardian sterling silver and enamel inkwell. Made by Grinsell & Sons in London in 1906. Dome base with reeded foot and rim and hinged cover. On cover top is inset enamel plaque: a cat sits on its haunches, front legs stiffened, ears erect, and gaze intense. Wonderful details include the shaded striping and fluffy chest fur. The pink nose is another sweet touch. A soft but stern kitty – a guaranteed cure for writer’s block. Clear glass well and cut-glass underside. Hallmarked. Excellent condition.

Dimensions: H 2 ¾ x D 4 1/3 in. BL833
