A superb example of a quality travelling inkwell by Charles Rawlings & Wm. Summers. It has crisp engine turning to the top along with an equally crisp cut glass hobnail base. Fully hallmarked for London 1831 with William IV’s head.
The inner leather gasket has perished over the years (as was often the case) and there is a tiny chip to the base.
Hallmarked for London 1831, "CRWS"
