A Spectacular Antique Dutch Rococo Faience Inkwell with a very deep cobalt -blue similar to faience made in Arras near the French & Belgium border.. In our Kovel's book," Dictionary of Marks - Pottery and Porcelain" by Ralph M. and Terry H. Kovel on page two , letter i, it has the same mark as shown on the bottom of this inkwell It says, " (i) " ROTTERDAM, Holland. A. Luffen, artist, Fayennce, 1700 ". I have searched and have not found another A.Luffen nor an inkwell as lovely/unique as this one..on multiple internet sites.. It is comparable to an Arras letter holder I have listed and other items of Arras..all that are about 1750 or so.. As I wrote the cobalt- blue pigment is very rare..most always on early pieces.. This measures 11" wide x 7 3/4" wide x 3 3/4" high.. Weight is heavy about 7 Lbs because of thick faience and it is closed on bottom whereas many inkwells have open bottoms.. In very good condition.. It is approximately 300 years old.. I did additional research and found a pair of vases that sold in 2012 with the same signature/marking " AL_". I photographed the information in our files saying, "A Luffen, Rotterdam. Holland early eighteenth century"
