French Empire Crystal Dore Bronze Inkwell

Lovely antique French fire gilded dore bronze and heavy crystal (most likely Baccarat) Napoleon Empire period inkwell. The ormolu base and hinged lid have the classic neoclassical ornamentation with a lovely aged patina. The heavy cut crystal body has beautiful lines and beveled edges. Deep cut wells for the pen to rest are found on the front and sides. The base is smooth and does show a few scratches---signs of use which is typical of a piece of this age (see photo). A fabulous accessory piece to add a touch of beauty to a desk or secretary!
