Elegant antique Napoleon III era French Empire style 4.5" wide desk top inkwell, thick & heavy cut crystal body with unique shaping, pen holder grooves and ornate pierced or reticulated gilt bronze casing & cap! Wonderful! A single inkwell here with a nice larger size and a quite unique ovoid shape. The cut crystal body has a large blown bubble reservoir and is encased in gilded bronze floral garland. The large bulbous top with a very French Neoclassical style medallion. Fabulous! We're also adding a scrumptious 7pc Baccarat French Empire style desk or writer's set this week so, be sure to take a look at it while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. Some slight spots of tarnish to the top but no denting that I can see. A bit of scuffing to the base and possibly a tiny nip or two to the crystal body but no larger chips, no cracks, damage or repairs. See pictures for all measurements.
