Antique Regency Rosewood and Boulle Ink Stand....Rare

A very fine antique Regency rosewood and Boulle inkstand c1820. Boulle is the name given to elaborate inlaid work of tortoiseshell and brass on wood. It has its two original cut glass inkwells which are complete with brass lids each inlaid with Boulle. When the inkwells are lifted out of the inkstand there is more Boulle work to be seen. Between the inkwells is a compartment for nibs, sealing wax etc. again smothered in Boulle work. The centre has a brass candlestick with its original candle snuffer attached to it. The front is recessed for pens or quills. A superb example of a Regency rosewood and Boulle inkstand. It measures 33cm wide x 26cm deep x 14cm max high. N.B. Anyone purchasing Tortoiseshell or Ivory pieces from outside the E.U. will have to have a CITES certificate in order to import the item into their country.
