He is holding the flowers tightly in his hands, going over what he wants to say to that very special girl His face is hopeful, his eyes look over to the side... is she coming? Is it time to get up and hand over the flowers? His heart beats faster... his cheeks blush a little... he smiles...

This is a wonderful inkwell! It dates to the turn of the last century, and was made in Germany. The face is especially sweet – just take a look! The top lifts off to reveal the inkwell insert. The insert is a replacement. It fits perfectly but the color is slightly creamier than the white porcelain of the body. The hat has a hole to hold a pen. GERMANY is stamped on the bottom, and the number 6416 is impressed in the back.

SIZE: This chubby guy is about 3 1/4" by 3", and is 5" tall.

CONDITION: This inkwell is in excellent condition. There are no chips or cracks in the porcelain or scratches in the paint. As stated, the insert is a replacement.

What a wonderful inkwell this is – how can you resist him?!!
