This listing is for a RARE Tiffany Studios NY CHINESE pattern bronze master inkwell #1753 with original glass insert, c. 1910.
The Chinese pattern is not found as often as the Pine Needle, Zodiac or some of the other desk set pieces and a master inkwell is even harder to find. Marked on base "Tiffany Studios NY, 1753". The inkwell has a pyramid form with hinged lid, has a verdigris finish and sits on four rectangular feet. The pattern is an Art Nouveau design that uses motifs influenced from archaic Chinese symbolism. The verdigris finish has its original naturally aged patina.
Dimensions: 5" high and is 6 1/2" square. Weighs 4.11 pounds.
Condition: This fabulous inkwell is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws or repairs. The glass inkwell insert is also in great condition with no distracting chips or cracks reflecting only minimal signs of normal wear. The hinge is tight and the lid opens and closes correctly.
