Animal Sub-Type:


A Horse Hoof inkwell or possibly a snuff or vesta with copper mounts and an inscription to the lid

Commemorating a horse named Ruby a



Faithfull and True

will be found upon four short legs

Ten times for one upon two

The base of the hoof is mounted with a horseshoe and this is impressed with the maker Rowland Ward Ltd 167 Piccadilly.

The condition is good but there is no glass liner if it is an inkwell. The inside of the lid is in a diamond pattern which is quite sharp, which made me think it may be to strike a match.

The copper is with a dark patina and the copper colour showing on the lid.

measures 4 5/8th x 5 across the base and 3 inches high.

I am happy to combine multiple buys bought within 7 days and so reduce the postage costs, If the WEIGHT exceeds 2kgms or the SIZE is over the new royal mail requirements this would not be possible so please check first

UK bidders can pay by either chq or Paypal Overseas bidders please pay by Paypal only.
