This is a spectacular figural inkwell created in the late 19th century. It is made of bronze with an aged patina and later mounted on a wooden base. The water wheel moves freely around and to the left is a tree stump for your pen. The top of the mill lifts to reveal the ink department but is in need of a glass liner. It measures 5 inches high and 5 inches wide. I have not attempted to clean this in any way. Fantastic condition!
