Lovely old ornate brass inkwell with attached pen rest and blotter, roller style, finest quality, heavy and in good condition, mild age wear. Beautiful designs in the metalwork on all sides of the inkwell, and interior of the pen rest, top of the blotter, even the sides of the platform of the inkwell, just lovely. On the back of the rest are lovely winged creatures with womens faces; we just love old brass with faces and wings. And these figures are as detailed on the back as the front. Then on the front of the inkwell is a cameo "portrait" of what appears to be a Greek scene with a man and lady; the metalwork on this set is just amazing. No signature, certainly reminds us of a Bradley and Hubbard in style, but we can not find any initials. The inkwell is missing the glass insert; replacements are available on the internet. Lid opens and closes fine. The inkwell/rest measures 8 & 3/4" long, 6 & 1/2" front to back at the center, and the inkwell is 4 & 3/4" tall. The roller blotter measures 5 & 1/2" long by 2 & 1/2" wide.
