A bronze inkwell that features the head of a Doberman dog. The canine shows a keen stare with pointed ears and a lovely blue / black finish. His mouth opens wide to show us the original porcelain insert hidden inside to hold your ink.
He sits flat as a stand alone item. We do not believe it was ever attached to another base. He / She is almost 3 1/2 inches tall to the top of it's ears and the base measures just over 2 inches.
There are some rough areas near the top of both ears but we believe this to be from the original making. We also see a thumbprint on the finish when first done. The right eye has a repair which may have been after casting. The hinge works beautifully and the porcelain insert is without damage.
