Desk Items 3

Nut bird Treen Dishes
These are larger nut birds with huge phenolic beaks and heads and glass eyes. Similar to the Dunhill YZ nut birds but these ones made by Bingham and Co., who may also have produced some of the Dunhill items for them. One bears the remnants of the original company label to the base. They measure 7 inches by 4 inches by 4 high (18cm x 10 x 10). In very good vintage condition.

Ref: M2048 & M2049 . . . Reserved

Leopard Desk Set by Jalnar
This lovely Egyptian themed desk set is French and made of spelter. The patina is gold and silver and it is signed Jalnar on the leopards tail. The brown marble base measures approx 8.5 inches by 5 inches deep, while the Leopard sits approx 6 inches high. The condition is good, although the ink pot no longer retains its liner.

Ref: F2211 . . . £120

Panther Desk Set
A French chromed spelter panther 4 inches high, on a 10 inch long marble base with an inkwell and a pen rest to the front. The inkwell has no liner, but the overall condition is pretty good with a small nick to the RH back corner of the base and the usual minor age scratches to the chrome on the panther that do not detract from the piece. A lovely original 1930s item.

Ref: F2069 . . . £130

Pierrette Desk Set
A cute little Belgian spelter desk set. Little lady sits on a 9 inch marble base which is 5.5 inches deep and the lady is 4.5 inches high. There are 2 hinged ink pots with glass inserts and a pen ridge to the front of the tray base. The marble is a cream colour with green striations and the condition is pretty good.

Ref: F2051 . . . £240

Woodpecker Desk Set by Franjou
A cute spelter and marble deskset, signed by the French sculptor Franjou. The base measures approx 9 inches by 5 inches and is 7 inches in height. The spelter bird and inkwell have a bronzed patina and the bird appears to have glass eyes. The base is of white striated black marble and cream onyx. Condition is good with just a few minor nibbles to the marble edge. The inkwell is missing its liner and has possibly had its hinge removed, as the lid just sits on the inkwell. More pics available on request.

Ref: M580 . . . £150

Snails Paper Weight
French chrome family of snails mounted on wood base measuring 7 x 3 inches (18x8cm) and designed originally by the French cartoonist Benjamin Rabier. Possibly originally an escargot set, in good condition with just some minor marks, scratches and wear to the larger snail shell - but not bad.

Ref: M474 . . . £75

Ivory Bakelite Telephone
A rare 1950s ivory coloured telephone, ex GPO and model number 164/56. In good condition, the dial returns well under its own momentum, the insides appear to be complete and in very good original condition. The sliding tray for telephone numbers is in good working order, and it still retains its original braided cord between phone and handset, although the main cable has been replaced with a modern piece. I cannot therefore say if it has been converted for modern use. A couple of minor nicks to the casing and a mark on the handpiece are the only apparent faults.

Ref: M719 . . . £180

Celluloid Desk Set
A cased set of green celluloid consisting letter knife, nib pen and pencil and comes with its original velvet lined box and two small containers holding spare nibs and spare pencil lead. Condition is good.

Ref: M946 . . . £65

Black Celluloid & Chrome Inkwell
Lovely stylish double inkwell with chrome pen rest to the front. Condition is good but no longer retains its inner inkwell liners. Still makes a nice desk ornament and pen holder. Measures 9 x 3 inches (23 x 8cm).

Ref: M951 . . . £48

Book Holder by Revere
Unsigned Revere chrome book holder, made in the USA. Pull out the side spirals and put books in it. It measures 7 inches wide by 5 high by 6 deep (18cm x 13 x 15). Condition is good with minor dirt to the chrome spirals.

Ref: M1790 . . . £165

Phenolic Desk Set
French cased in its original box, phenolic and lucite desk set. Consists of pencil, stamp, knife, letter opener and pen (with no nib). Condition is very good with just some minor age cracking internally to the lucite ends. The set looks unused.

Ref: M4077 . . . £175
