Victorian Sterling Silver Pen Wipe. This beautiful novelty piece is made from sterling silver. It is in the form of a boot scraper with swing handles to the sides and brushes to the base and sides for wiping a pen nib clean. The wipe is set on a red leather-covered base.It is clearly hallmarked for London 1898 with the maker's mark of the highly collected silversmith, Sampson Mordan & Co. The brushes are also in very good condition with firm bristles and no missing tufts. The bristles appear to be very clean.
The base plate is in good order although there are some light grazes to the leather as you can see in the photos. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements. Size - 5.7 cm (2 ¼") square across the base 5.1 cm (2") square across the silver frame Height - 2.3 cm.

To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat. All packages must be signed for upon receipt. Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it. I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices.On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Get images that make Supersized seem small. Showcase your items with Auctiva's.
