Geschutzt Bronze Art Glass Ink Well, Art Nouveau Antique Ink Well
Here we have a stunning Art Nouveau signed Art Glass Bronze ink well. The base of the tray is signed on the underside "Geschutzt" in bold capitals. In German, the word Geschützt means "legally protected" and can be found on numerous patent-protected German and Austrian antiques. The hinge of the art glass ink well is signed with what I believe to be D.R.G.M. O.E.P.
The Glass is a wonderful purple to green withIt measures about 3''. Inner bubbles and inclusions can be seen on the inside of the hand blown glass bottle. It is spectacular in the light.
The tray is crafted with a flowing Art Nouveau Lily Pad and motif. It measures 9-3/4'' x 8''. This stunning set is an estate find that has been well cared for. It shows no signs of damage or mis use.
