This is a lovely lady’s inkwell that was designed to be taken on trips as well as used on a desk. The background glaze is a pale green. A branch covered in pink blossoms and green foliage is hand painted on the two sides and front. Pink blossoms are painted on the top. Gold trim embellishes the decoration. The hinged lid is made so the top fits securely over the raised edge of the bottom. There is a latch in front that secures the lid, as well as a leather pad inside the lid that helps to seal the well when closed. This inkwell should not spill ink if it is closed with the latch. The base is unmarked.
SIZE: This inkwell is just under 2 inches square and about 2 7/8 inches high.
CONDITION: Condition is very good. Some of the gold trim is worn, but otherwise the glaze and paint are in excellent condition. The hinge is strong, and the latch works well. There are no chips or cracks in the porcelain.
