Finnigans Travel Inkwell & Match Safe

Finnigans was a high end leather goods retailer (mostly trunks, suitcases, purses). The main office was in Manchester but they opened on Bond Street in London at the turn of the 20th century. These would be early 1900’s vintage. Used but not abused; some ink stains but the leather is in good condition, with no tears. The ink bottle is present and the inkwell has the extra latch similar to Asprey and other expenive versions of travel inkwells. The match safe has a striker plate and a double storage area, 1 for unused matches and another for used. These items came in a set as people also needed matches to light the candles in order to see while writing.
