A silver-plated standish - a desk set holding pens and ink - featuring a 120 mm-high figure of W.G. Grace as its centrepiece
The item comprises an almond-shaped base (approximately 195 × 130 × 30 mm), surmounted by a 120 mm-high figure of W.G. Grace standing between two glass inkpots with silver lids, and a two-part stand for pens.
The decorated rim of the base is slightly bumped; in excellent condition, albeit a little tarnished.
Probably Edwardian; the underside of the base is stamped 'James Deakin & Sons | Sheffield | 10475'.
