This lovely milk glass inkstand was made in the late 1800s. We are not sure of the maker. This type of glass was made both in Europe – mostly France – and America during the 19th century. The stand features an integral insert, lift off lid and double pen stand in front. Sprays of hand painted blue forget-me-nots decorate the front and top. The top of the finial is painted blue. The glass is very opaque, with a slight blue tint to it. The tips of the pen holder do show some opalescence when held up to the light.

This inkstand comes from my personal inkwell collection, which I am in the process of downsizing. Look for many more fine inkwells to be added to our shop.

SIZE: 3 1/4” wide, 4” deep (from front of pen holder to back of inkstand), and about 3 1/” high to the top of the finial.

CONDITION: There is chipping around the edges of the inside bottom. We believe this may have happened during manufacture, when it was removed from the mold. There are also a few old hairline cracks – on the finial and on one side of one pen holder. We believe they occurred quite some time ago; they do not affect integrity of the piece. The painted flowers are in very nice condition, and there are no chips on the outside of the inkstand. Even with the age cracks, this is a very nice inkstand that displays well.

These do not appear often, and this would make a nice addition to an inkwell or milk glass collection.
