This wonderful and rare Victorian silver desk clip which is of very nice quality is made by silversmith James Samuel Bell & Louis Willmott, retailed by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd and is fully hallmarked for 1899.

The handsome desk clip which is designed with a pair of lucky wishbones is spring loaded so could also be used as a menu holder or to display a photograph, business card or party invitation. Looks very nice on display just on it's own.

This would make a great collectors piece for a menu holder collector and would make a lovely gift.
