This is an inkwell from the Pennsylvania Railroad. We guarantee it is old and original. It is in wonderful condition complete with its original lid, on which PRR appears in intertwined letters.
If you look inside at the bottom you will see PRR molded into the glass. The lid sits on the glass rim, it does not attach or screw on.
SIZE is approximately 3 inches square. The glass is very thick, but molded wonderfully into a "block" look. There are quite a few interesting swirls in it.
There are NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. Even the glass rim is fine with no chips. The only thing we would point out is that the inside is stained brownish from old ink. We have NOT attempted to clean this.
These inkwells are not easy finds. When they do appear, the glass often is damaged, or the lid is missing. Here is a superb specimen, just waiting to join a good PRR or vintage desk item collection !
