Can I Borrow Your Pen?

The Castlereagh Inkstand, 1818-1820, Paul Storr and Philip Rundell, London, The Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

This was a political gift given in recognition for the diplomatic and and negotiating skills of Viscount Castlereagh in negotiating alliances against Napoleon.
