This is a very ornate Victorian bronze inkwell. The entire piece has a heavy rococo influence. It doesn’t matter from which angle you view this piece, it has a striking appearance. It is heavily scrolled and on the bottom front is a very detailed face. The cover of the inkwell is hinged and works perfectly. It also retains the original porcelain inkwell insert. In the center is a porcelain insert with an exquisite hand painted portrait of an attractive woman with a large red feathered hat and a beautiful necklace. The approximate size is 8 ½ inches long and 6 3/8 inches deep by 5 inches to the top of the finial on the cover and is in excellent condition. This is an exceptional vintage French inkwell and would look great on your desk.
