Fabulous old inkwell of fine heavy bronze with ornate metalwork designs with Celtic and Middle Eastern influence, almost a blend of Art Deco and Nouveau,with original glass ink liner inside. The glass liner appears to be either cobalt glass or black amethyst glass as we can see a purple blue glimmer when we hold this piece under the light, the glass liner does not want to come out for inspection. Beautiful patina to the metal, unsigned on the top or sides, bottom has old green glued felt. This lovely writing piece measures 5 & 1/8" across and is 3" tall. It is in very good condition with no damage, age wear only and mild at that.
