Description

This is a Fantastic Se`vres Ormolu mounted fountain pen tray. It is an early antique piece from around the 1850’s to 1870’s. It is in good condition with no damage. It is marked with the early Sevres mark on the bottom. It also is marked C.R. and 15/5. Purchased from an estate of an antique dealer in Pensacola, FL. He sold antiques for about 60 years.

Sèvres is a commune in the southwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 9.9 kilometres from the centre of Paris.

Ormolu (from French or moulu, signifying ground or pounded gold) is an English term, used since the 18th century for the gilding technique of applying finely ground, high-carat gold–mercury amalgam to an object of bronze, and for objects finished in this way. I try to describe items as accurately as possible.
