Here we have a wonderful mid - late 1800’s Inkwell. It is made of fine silver plate and has a handle to carry it, and two candle holders so you can melt the wax for sealing letters as well as having light. Cruet-type stands also became popular in the 17th century home. These included three cylindrical containers, one for ink, one with a perforated top for use as a sand-caster and the third for wafers. Up to this time, an inkstand was commonly known as a standish.
