An Exceptional Ormolu Double Inkwell
The ormolu holder has four small feet to raise the inkwells! Inlay designs appear on the surface around the inkwells and there are ormolu rings attached to the glass inkwells that are then wired into the holder. ( a great way to keep the inkwells from falling out of their holes) A bead like necklace is found at the top middle joins into the wire holes. This elegant piece would appear to be an outstanding desk accessory.
Measurements: 2-3/4"w. x 2" depth.
