A rare and beautiful Silver Inkwell made for the prestigious luxury brand of Smythson in New Bond Street London.  Based on a solid block of smoky quartz crystal it is assayed to John Grinsell of Birmingham in 1921.  The hallmark has a full Smythson attribution.  A large piece (there were smaller ones) and a stunning example of early Deco. There is no apparent damage to the crystal or silver.  Hobnail cut base. The inkwell inner is original and fully functional but is missing part of its upper flange.  This is not visible in normal view.
