Fine Antique French Inkwell or Standish in Ormolu; having a hinged lid and circular stepped body with applied cast floral decoration, and raised on three toupie feet. Circa 1850.
Most likely French, 19th century. The image of an Englishman hunting with a hound was a common image on enamel boxes, especially snuff boxes in the eighteenth century. However, it clearly dates to the late nineteenth century. The lug and ribbed banding on the metal hinge, as well as the completely hand painted nature of the lid identify this box as a nineteenth-century creation.
Damage to hinge. Lid does not close entirely. Loss to underside enamel.

Alexandria, VA had a thriving salt-glazed stoneware industry throughout most of the 19th Century. Many pieces are marked with the makers name and "ALEXa" or "DC/ALEXa". Some common makers were John Swann, B.C. Milburne, H.C. Smith and E.J.Miller (a retailer). We are always interested in purchasing examples of Alexandria stoneware. If you have something you would like to sell, please send us a photo including the makers mark, size, condition and the price (we do not make offers).
