Weight: 500 (excluding glass inkwells) grams
Dimensions: 26.5cm long, 19.2cm across, 7.5cm high
Condition: Good, slight kink to base. Hinges and glass wells in excellent condition. It appears that an inscription has been removed, but this does not detract from the piece.

Both the inkwells and borders are pierced with an attractive design, and are adorned with 8 classical lion faces, 4 on each corner and 4 (with rings in mouth) around the inkwells. The stand also has a beaded border and bun feet. The lids, which are both individually hallmarked, have rose finials. The glass inkwells fit snugly into their holders.
