This little dog is fiercely defending his stump – and the ink that waits beneath. He crouches and growls, mouth open menacingly. Who knows... maybe once he gets used to you, that growl will turn to a happy greeting! These cold painted pot metal inkwells are so much fun – enough of them were made with different animals and shapes to hold the inkwell that an entire small collection could be put together with them.

Two short branches stick out from the front of the stump to create a pen rest. The flat lid opens on a wire hinge to reveal the glass insert. This is not original to the inkwell – most of these inkwells started out with ceramic inserts – but this one fits like a hand in a glove and allows the lid to close all the way down.

SIZE: The stump base has a diameter of 2 1/8", while the pen rest adds 5/8". Height is 3".

CONDITION: This little inkwell is in excellent condition. Usually these cold painted inkwells are missing spots of paint; this one is just about perfect.

This little guy wants a home... in your home!
