C1870 Ormolu (gilded bronze) and Porcelain Inkwell


This charming encrier, or inkwell, is gilded p bronze, and has a porcelain figure of a trumpeter inset. I have b not identified the porcelain but Meissen or an Edme Samson copy thereof might be contenders. The whole stands 13 cm tall., The encrier lid is missing. The porcelain seems to be in perfect condition. The ormolu features a gilded chicken pecking at the trumpeter's feet.
