Colonial inkwell made in rough, natural New Zealand kauri gum pieces. Lumps of gum have been melted together with central smooth circular inkwell section. It has a little lid to cover the inkwell. Kauri gum is the fossilized resin of the New Zealand kauri tree, often called New Zealand amber. Item measures 52 mm high, 102 mm long and 85 mm wide. It would date from colonial period, late 19th to very early 20th century. The finial to the lid is chipped, and there are normal scuff marks. Most unusual NZ colonial item. No stains in the inkwell, so maybe they used a small liner, or possibly has never been used.
Wooden two-tier pencil box with transfer print of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandria with St James's Palace and Windsor Castle on the lid.

Interesting European continental antique faience inkwell - white glaze over slightly pinkish white earthenware body. Hand painted in blue designs. Looks a lot like Delft, but I'm not certain. The only maker's mark is a hand painted R underneath (just like the French Robert's faience factory in Marseilles, but I don't think this item is that early - but I could be wrong). Part of the decoration on the lid of the inkwell itself is cross and dots, a little like the Weesp mark. Measurements: 11.5 cm diameter and 8.2 cm high (4.1/2 inches by about 3.1/4 inches). The finial to the lid has been off and some time, and is glued on. There is a scrape to the point of the finial, resulting in lack of glaze there. The inside of the ink pot has had the glaze worn off in two areas, one on either side of the bottom - probably where a sharp dip pen was often rested. The loss of glaze here has resulted in an ink-blue mark. There are three round holes in the top of the stand for holding your pen. Lovely piece, is a good weight, definitely not modern. Inside the carcass, the thick white glaze has not touched all areas giving a good insight into the way the item was made.

Bevelled glass inkwell, measuring 54 mm high and 69 mm square (2.1/8 inches and about 2.3/4 inches square). It would date from very early 20th century, and has wear on the underneath to support this age. There is a shallow chip on one side. Still a nice piece of glass, and a useful paperweight, since the well is deep enough to accommodate pins or paperclips. Comes with a little pewter liner - but I don't think this is original to it, as it is much less deep than the actual glass well.

Separate items are a letter rack (marble and chrome), a blotter roller with chrome handle, a seal with marble handle reading K.G.T. in script, and another instrument which I think was possibly a letter opener, which screwed into the marble handle - only the handle remains, no blade.

General Gordon was famously killed during the defense of Khartoum. Ink well measures 71 mm high and 117 mm diameter (2.3/4 inches by 4.1/4 inches). It has a screw thread around the top of the well, so must have once had a lid. Shallow well, definitely not a bottle per se. It is in excellent condition - there is one very shallow sliver of glass off the underneath of the well. Not seen unless you turn it upside down. Most unusual item.

This pretty little Victorian pencil has either a crystal or a citrine stone set into the finial, engraved with the owner's initials (can't quite read them.. D.E something, can't decipher the last one). The pencil is made in gold - no hallmarks or maker's names, but it would have to be gold of some type - it is very slim and delicate, and has suffered a few little dings along the barrel over the years. The sliding retraction mechanism still works, although I haven't been able to get a lead into it, as I think there is the remains of a lead still in there. Pencil measures 82 mm long when retracted, and 92 mm long when out. It is 4 mm diameter on the barrel (3.1/4 inches and 3.5/8 inches length, and 3/16 inch diameter). Circa mid to late 19th century.
