TEA KETTLE INKWELL ON GILT METAL STAND.
A very attractive and unusual Victorian white china tea kettle inkwell with blue and gilt decoration with two central panels of hand painted flowers. Large gilt metal top to the ink pot, the spout has a separate hinged lid on a folding arm, very unusual and probably some type of patent. The inkwell sits on a gilt metal stand. Slight wear to the gilt finish of the tea kettle spout but other than that it is in superb condition with no chips, cracks or other damage. Very unusual inkwell. [Condition: Near Mint]
