Old Hand Carved Wood Treen Hinged Lidded Inkwell
Carved from a single solid piece of a tree, this is one nifty and pretty rare inkwell. Top and bottom sections match up exactly, continuing each other’s pattern.
It is in very good vintage condition considering its age. There is one small section on the top where a piece of bark has fallen by the wayside. This you will find neatly wrapped inside the inkwell, should you decide to attach it. Sorry, but I don’t do repairs. Note that with such Treen items that have the bark shown on the outside, the bark does sometimes come away, leaving a bit of wood from underneath exposed. This is a natural occurrence with these old pieces and can actually add to the rustic look of bark.
When opened, you can see right thru a spot where the outer bark is not adhered to the wood. This is not a defect – it was created by Mother Nature. Measures 3-1/2” diameter x 2-1/2” height.
