Strange object, Spain? Brasil? Portugal?

Postby sebastian4743 » Sat Apr 11, 2020 12:51 pm

What do you think was this item made for? I would also appreciate if someone could identify the marks. Maker would probably be S. Beo. 77 probably the date 1877, maybe 1777?

It was sold as one but I am not convinced at all. Four different containers, no lids (maybe missing?). Very strange in general.

Thank you for your help. What was the smallest container in front used for? The middle one was for a candle I guess? The the two on sites for ink maybe? But the smallest? Please advise.

Ink well, pounce pot or sander,a receptacle for quills in the middle,possibly a receptacle for sealing wax in front.

Hello good afternoon:
This is the silversmith Santiago Bermejo, born in Sevanes - Asturias - Spain in 1728. Approved in 1765. Resident at Calle Caballero de Gracia, 5 in Madrid - Spain.
He must have reproduced this scribe on several occasions, among my bibliography I have found it in two different books. Attached photos. Cheers
