Description

A fantastic quality Victorian travelling writing set, by Fitzmaurice West.
Fitzmaurice West were cutlers and dressing case manufacturers to the Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and other members of the Royal Family. They succeeded G. Palmer at 1, St Jamesís Street in 1844 and moved to 2, St Jamesís. Street in 1877, and then to 9 King Street in 1883.
This fabulous writing case opens to reveal a fully fitted interior, with silver topped jar and travelling inkwell by Thomas Diller, hallmarked London 1840, a fabulous seal with beautifully cut amethyst coloured stone, a quality pencil, nib pen, combination knife/letter opener and ruler.
The compartments each lift out and open to reveal two further silk covered boxes holding a number of nibs.
A truly wonderful Victorian set, of the highest quality. The complete set, is in excellent condition with no damage to the components with the exception of the knife/page turner, the mother of pearl has unfortunately broken (it is a clean break and when in the case for display purposes, barely noticeable), never the less, an incredible set and rare to find complete. There is typical wear to the case, including ink stains as to be expected.
