Thus item is a HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST DOG INKWELL. This guy is a real cutie with a pair of big ears, glass eyes and a jaunty cap plus a bow tie. The carvings are excellent with great detail and the color and patina are spot-on. The dog measures 5" high. The glass inkwell appears to be original to the piece. There are no cracks, breaks or other issues.
