For sale is a RARE! Antique 19th Century Belgium Porcelain Figural Inkwell set made in the area of Tournai, an area well known for its superb white porcelain. It is complete with two smaller round pots that fit within a larger decorative case and a mother of pearl made ink pen. The two smaller pots within holds ink and pounce powder respectively, the later of which is a fine powder to dry excessive ink.The outer case is amazingly decorative and detailed art work. It depicts two hunters resting next to a tree stump with their hunting dog and the days game (rabbit, etc). The man on the left holds a hunting rifle.
The man on the right a hunting knife. They both look calm and observant of their surroundings.
The top is a full 3D porcelain sculpture with details made on every angle. Golden color is applied by hand to highlight the theme. The base has two holes to hold the two inner containers and is also decorated to mimic the surrounding trees and floras, again with golden highlights.
The base extends forward to form a pen rest. A mother of pearl ink pen comes with the ink well. It sits well on the pen rest.
