Description:

Antique "Brass and Ebony wood Boulle" double inkwell/desk top writing set

I am not sure of it's original origin, but possibly French dating back to 19th Century (1850 AD but could possibly be older or newer

It is not in perfect condition but still an exquisitely beautiful piece

Has a single front drawer - no key

Has one original glass ink pot - neck broken off, the other is in one piece with a few small chips to rim (not sure if this one is original) These can be purchased on eBay.

Solid brass handle which also serves as a pen holder

Small central compartment, possibly for storing stamps or other small items

There are some parts that have the Ebonized wood inlay missing

A small section on top that has some of the intricate brass leaf missing

Despite it not being in perfect condition this is a magnificent and rare collectible antique
