Antique French Hand Painted Polychrome Famille Rose Paste Porcelain Inkwell
ANTIQUE FRENCH HAND PAINTED POLYCHROME FAMILLE ROSE PASTE PORCELAIN INKWELL. This beautiful antique French porcelain inkwell from the estate of Alex Harvin III, South Carolina representative. The boat shaped inkwell is beautifully hand painted in an Asian inspired famille rose decoration with lovely flowers on all sides surrounded by a scroll of moriage or raised beading and gilt accents. The mount appears to be bronze ormolu as are the pen/stamp holders. It has the original ink insert and all bronze inserts, one with a foliate design on the bottom as shown.

Not certain if the inserts are suppose to be secure or loose as they are. Bottom is marked Made in France, design is similar to Saint-Cloud soft paste porcelain produced in the 17th and 18th centuries. The inkwell is in very fine, antique, pre-owned condition!

No chips or cracks, complete, slight wear to gilt. It measures approximately 6 1/4" long, 3 1/4" wide, 3 1/2 tall. A desirable antique French inkwell to give as a gift or display in your own collection! DON'T FORGET TO View My Other Items For Sale. Add me to your Favorite Sellers.
