You are viewing an incredibly quirky and unusual French silverplate inkwell in the shape of an ormolu boar. I hope the photos go some way in conveying the beauty to this piece, it\’s certainly better in the flesh.
The casting and finish is amazing and you should check out details like the texture to the boars coat and the intricate banding to the base. The boars head opens out to reveal the inkwels and you can see the pot for the ink in the head.
This piece is offered in perfect condition ready to take pride of place in your collection. We will ship to anywhere in the world. We have also included a close up photo of the factory stamp on the underside.
