ANTIQUE SILVER INK STANDS

Originating in the 17th Century, when they were known as a ‘standish’, the silver ink stand is an essential item for any writing desk. 18th Century examples are often formed as a stand with three silver pots, one for ink, one for shot which was used to sharpen the quill, and one for pounce, used to dry the ink after writing. Later examples can be found with additional accessories such as bells to summon servants, stamp holders, and taper sticks for sealing wax. Novelty designs, ink stands made by collectible silversmiths, and early examples are all highly sought after today.
