Antique Victorian period Top Quality writing stand pen rest with large sized pressed and cut glass ink well in a polygon drum style with a bright cut base, the surface of the writing stand is mounted with pierced, chased and fret cut ormolu mounts of an ornate design, each save the lower centre one being mounted with a silver cartouche bearing the Prince of Wales Feathers and the legend 'Ich Dien', this piece likely having been used within the Royal Household or similar during the period.
