A wonderful and very large example of a figural Black Forest inkwell in the form of a Dog's head, with a beautiful bright patina.
He retains his original large glass eyes, without damage. The original collar is also intact, with superb detailing including a red felt lining a buckle and a brass name plate to the back.
The lid opens to reveal a ceramic removable ink chamber. A superb example dating to around 1890, Victorian in era. 3 1/2" wide x 4 1/2" deep x 4 3/4" tall. Excellent condition.
