This late nineteenth century inkwell is made of brass with a body of beautifully enameled ceramic. The lid is cast with a nice design and opens with a strong hinge. The pottery is set into the top part of the body; the base is also brass. The insert is ceramic. It is likely not the original as it is a little wobbly, but it fits pretty well. It appears that this inkwell may have been used without an insert. The decorative ceramic is enameled with pink, blue and deep red flowers and leaves.

SIZE: Height is 3 3/4 inches. Diameter at the base is 4 1/4 inches. Diameter at the top rim is 2 1/4 inches.

CONDITION: Condition is very good considering the over 100 years of age. There are a couple of dents on the base and a few very small dings on the edge of the brass rim above the ceramic. Otherwise there are no major dents or cracks in the metal. The hinge is strong and the lid fits tightly. The ceramic is in excellent condition. There is ink staining the top rim and under the lid.
