# 4815. A fine Grand Tour Desk Set. Late 19th century. Silver plate. Composed of a letter opener (6.75" long); wax seal which has never had a monogram (3" long); ink pen to be used with a removable ink nib (7.25" long). Condition: the metal work in in excellent condition. The box: the top is separated from the lower section with the hinges broken; the top has a long crack; the leather is considerably scuffed. This set is possibly English or French, though there is no hallmarks on any of the three pieces. The symbols on each item probably have meaning and might relate to a family of note: dog, crown, cross. Price for the set is: $450.00.
