Evocative of the Middle East and exotic adventures, this camel naps while he waits for someone to open up his hump and dip into the ink he stores there. He truly looks like a camel, with his eyes half closed, and a haughty sneer on his face. He is made of cast metal with a steel base, and is painted in "natural colors" (according to the Judd catalogue), which includes a variety of colors on the saddle blanket and saddle itself. The hump opens on a hinge to reveal the glass insert inside. This inkstand was manufactured by the H. L. Judd Company in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The camel inkstand came in two sizes. This one is the smaller of the two.

SIZE: This guy measures 6" by 3" and is 4" high.

CONDITION: He is in excellent condition. Paint is 95% or better. There are just a few spots where paint is missing, mainly around his mouth. This is typical of cold painted metal of this age. The hinge is in good shape, and there are no cracks or other damage to the metal.

Every inkwell collection needs a camel – add this one to yours!
