Victorian Papier Mache Hand Painted Ink Well w/ Butterflies, Daisies

This black, papier mache ink well is hand painted in white and gold, with butterflies and daisies. The flat base is 8 1/4" long, and 5 7/8" wide, and stands on four 1 1/2" feet which extend beyond the base. The top has a groove, 1 1/2" X 6", to hold pens. A raised stamp box is center back, this flanks two 1 3/4" square slots, or dadoes, to hold the two beveled glass ink wells. The two bottles are 1 5/8" square, 1 1/2" tall, beveled on the sides, top shoulder, and bottom. These cut glass bottles have some chips, but when mounted, they do not show. They also have metal lips, but no stoppers. A nice set, in need of a little TLC.
