C1820 Vieux Paris Encrier or Inkwell


This delightful little Charles Xth period Old Paris Porcelain inkwell is in perfect condition with a small amount of wear to the gilding. The gilding on Old Paris is fugitive and is often completely worn away. It is charmingly made as a Boy with a hat, holding a bowl,  sitting near a well. The crisp rectangular base is exactly 7 cm by 5 cm, which is not surprising since being post-Napoleonic, it would have been made in metrics. It is 7.5 cm tall.
