A Magnificent Inkwell 
What a beautiful piece! Such an unusual form for an inkwell. The double ormolu inkwell rests on three feet and the curved wires could hold a pen. The wires extend underneath the inkwell to provide a fourth leg for support. Two small glass inkwells are inserted in the two openings. Impressed designs and raised beads resembling a necklace are found on the surface around the inkwells! A medallion behind the pen holder certainly adds to the charm of this piece! The ormolu is strong and brilliant. A splendid accessory for that special desk!
Measurements: 2-1/4w. x 1"h. (for the wires that extend upward)
