I would be extremely greatful if someone would give me some concrete information about the history of this item. It is now in a foreign West-European collection, so it's hard to find some archives here. I am also curious what this logo on the front means. And is Mr Frederick Ransome
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Ransome
somehow related to this?
Thank you beforehand!

    Great traveling inkwell-- it appears to be in excellent condition and I believe these are from about 1900.

    I do not know how to search English patents-- so I cannot help in determining the full name of the "Ransome" who invented the inkwell.

    Good luck with your search.

    Scott
