Edwardian Sterling Silver Inkwell Tray & Crystal Inkwells. O ffered is a beautiful survivor of two world wars in this unique, heavy silver tray and crystal inkwell desk-set. The silver desk tray was made by listed silversmith (Thomas) Levesley Bros of Mary St, Sheffield England in 1904. The silver weighs in at 7.7 troy ounces but of course no one is going to scrap this piece which is a national treasure.The tray is a heavy silver 7 1/4" x 5". It is adorned by beefy silver feet and a heavily scrolled edge. The tray has a pair of 1 5/8 raised edge recepticals designed to hold standard size inkwells. This brings us to the inkwells- They were probably made for this tray by the Henry Bushell Co in 1903, in Birmingham England.
These 2 matching inkwells are crystal cubes topped with sterling silver hinged caps covering silver pen well rings. The maker marks are stamped in a rectangle on the neck of these silver lids. The maker /date codes on the lids show the inkwells were made in 1903. This is a beautiful set of Edwardian period British history. Note- With gratitude to British silver expert Silver Master for his research assistance.Signature may be required depending on feedback history.
