Magnificent Victorian Era Figural Lion Inkwell

We recently purchased from a private estate a collection of rare and unique Victorian inkwells. This is a spectacular Victorian Era inkwell in the form of a royal lion. The lion is a magnificent animal and this inkwell captures the true essence of royalty in the animal world. It is a very detailed and well executed inkwell. It is unsigned, however it is obvious that it was produced by a quality artisan. I really love this inkwell. It is huge, measuring 4 ½ inches tall and 10 ½ inches at the widest point by 8 inches deep. I don’t know if this has been repainted over the years or if the paint is original. Either way it is spectacular. It weighs 4 ¾ lbs. This super vintage inkwell is in excellent condition including the glass insert which is perfect. This would be a fabulous addition to a vintage inkwell collection or a great gift to the lion in your life!
