Black Amethyst, Art Deco, U.S. Navy, Ink Well

Here we have, a very nice, unusual, ink well. It has a base and the ink well is a ball, that rests in the base. The top of the ink well looks to be bakelite, and the dip center is rubber. The well is three pieces, not including the base. All are in great condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The base is marked, Property of U.S. Navy, and in the center it is marked, ZEPHYR AMERICAN CO., SWIVEL DIP, TRADE MARK, PAT. APPLIED FOR, NEW YORK, N.Y. I have had one of these before, but it wasn't for the Navy, and this is the second one I have ever seen. Beautiful, dark color, and when held to the sun, you can see a little bit through it. Great piece, to add to an ink well collection, or to a military collection!
