A rare find is this "travelling" brass Quill holder and inkwell combined, the Quills are stored in the main body and the inkwell is lidded at the end and it has a beautiful hand made hinge with a "crown" finial...I have been told it could have been made to be on board a ship as it has a good weight to it...
