If someone can please help me with age and origin of this inkwell with letter opener, wax stamp , pen and pocket watch holder. I purchased it in Belgium.
I did all my tests and think its bronze and maybe from Indonesia because of the painted service.
If anyone can give me any information I would be grateful.

Does the lid 'ping' like a bell when tapped or thud like brass?
Thanks so much for the quick response! When I tap the top it thuds like brass but when I try with my super strong magnet it does not attract like all my other brass.
Any idea of the value?
We used to sell sets like this for 400-600 in the prior century so figure 30-80% discount in the current market. Try Ebay 'sold' section or Liveautioneers.com
