Charles & George Fox Sterling Silver Inkwell from 1886 in Victorian Style

US$1,825per set

About

Sterling silver inkstand with two glass and silver hinged lid inkwells by Charles Thomas Fox & George Fox from 1886 in Victorian style, the stand with openwork scrolling floral design with acanthus knees and scrolled feet. The stand measures 9 ½’’ in length by 5 ½’’ in width by 1 2/3’’ in height and weighs 18.6 ozt. The inkwells measure 2 1/4'' in width by 2 1/2'' in height. Both bear hallmarks and inscriptions as shown. The founder of the firm was Charles Fox, 'plate worker' active at 139 Old Street, Goswell Street. In 1822 he was succeeded by his son, Charles Fox II. His works show consistently high quality and the rapid entry of marks suggests a fairly large establishment with varying marks used for different categories of work. Fox can be considered the last individualist plateworker before the debacle of Victorian mass production. At the retirement of Charles Fox II the family business was taken over by his sons Charles Thomas Fox (born 1801) and George Fox (born 1816). George Fox continued running the firm. After the death of George Fox his son Robert Frederick Fox (born 1845) continued the trade as C.T. & G. Fox. The firm closed down in 1921.
