Black glass with white enamel decoration, this 1890's inkwell is in good condition. It has a blown glass insert. This antique inkwell has a brass collar and hinge, and it stays open with good balance. Size is 2.75 inches high, 2.5 inches diameter. Black glass (opaque) with white enamel is usually Bohemian in origin, 1880's to 1890's. This piece is in good condition. There is one tiny scuff on the glass near the collar, just from usage. It is slight. I tried to photograph it (last photo) but it doesn't show much at all. No chips, no cracks, no repairs. White enamel flowers on top and leaves along the sides, all good condition. Brass parts have old bronze color patina, not polished. Just the way you want to see it. Glass insert does have ink stain. A nice antique inkwell for your collection.
