Such a beautiful flowing shape, this desk stand is elegant and decorative. The tray is shaped to create a home for your pens and has a shaped section where the original inkwell sits.
Made for a fairly short period (1847 - early 1900's) Gutta Percha pieces are both beautiful and scarce. This desk tray being a particularly good example.
