This fairly large vintage inkwell has a hinged brass cap on a heavy clear blown glass base. The glass is fine quality and blown with the ink chamber at the top over a 3/4" thick base of solid glass, similar to a paperweight. The bottom has a ground and polished concave pontil. It is fairly large and makes a statement wherever it sits.

The cap is a doorknob shape and a heavy gauge brass. It has a sturdy hinge, but wiggles a little. There are small bands of rouletting around the collar and top.

It is hard to date exactly because there are no marks, but the style looks early 20th century (1900-30) to me. (The pen in the 2nd picture is for size reference & not included).

Measurements: Glass base is 5¼" (13.3cm) in diameter; Hard to measure, but its about 4" (10.2cm) high to the top of the lid; Brass cap is 2¼" (5.7cm) in diameter at the widest.

Condition: The glass has a few tiny dings around the outer edge and some wear and surface scratches to the bottom. The brass lid has a very small dent in the center top and a little wear around the outer edges.
