15cm (6in) x 15cm (6in) x 15cm (6in)

Iron on granite from Sevastopol Docks. Russian round shot adapted for use as an inkwell with glass liner and weighted ‘flame’ stopper, mounted onto to a square granite base with chamfered edges, the leading edges applied with a period plaque inscribed 'SEVASTOPOL'.

A personal momento of the Crimean War & the Fall of Sebastopol in September 1855. After a month long bombardment, the Malakoff and the Redan fortresses were taken by assault and Sebastopol fell. The Russians then destroyed the defences, evacuated the town leaving their sick and wounded behind them. After the fall an inventory of the captured stores was made over 10 days in the latter part of September 1855, and the spoil divided by the Allies according to value and manpower in the Crimea.
