A very pretty antique desk top Inkwell. The Inkwell is made of stoneware and is decorated with a pretty floral motif that includes Bleeding Heart or Fuchsia Flowers, Roses and Leaves. There is a center reservoir and 3 places for dip pens or quill pens. There is a crescent moon mark on the inside and the number 4 on the bottom, The Inkwell is probably English, Adams or a similar quality company. It measures 2 3/4" in diameter x 1 7/8" high. The Inkwell is in very good overall condition. The only thing to note is a shallow nick on the top inner edge and an in the making dark glaze speck on the outer edge, see closeup photos. The Inkwell would make a lovely addition to a desk top or English pottery collection.
