This inkwell is carved to look like a stump – or possibly a basket - with three leafy carved legs. The glass inkwell is blown with a cut and polished rim, and half circles cut around the bottom part. The lift off lid is also carved with leaves.
SIZE: From one “leg” to the other, measurement is about 5 inches wide. The inkwell is about 4 inches high to the top of the lid.
CONDITION: Condition is very good. Overall. the inkwell has a few very small nicks on the top rim and under the edge of the shoulder where it rests on the wooden base. Otherwise, the glass is in good condition. There are also a few small points of wood at the bottom that have chipped and a couple of scratches that allow the light wood to show through the darker stain. There is some ink staining the bottom part of the glass inkwell; this can be cleaned if desired.
