Antique Blown Glass Art Nouveau Ink Well - Heavy Glass Inkwell with Brass Hinged Lid | Circa 1910s/1920s
As a child of antique bottle collectors, I'm always on the look out for inkwells. We recently came across the estate sale of a collector. He had multiple gorgeous inkwells (and lots of other interesting items too). This heavy blown glass ink well is a particularly nice piece from that collection. It has a sleek low circular base, 4" diameter and weighs over 1 pound. The hinged lid appears to be brass and has a raised heart shaped pattern. It is a gorgeous piece perfect for any collector.
• Antique blown glass inkwell
• Heavy glass with hinged lid
• Measures approx 2" tall x 4" diameter at base
• In excellent condition, scratches as you would expect from use on the bottom, a small divet on the top that appears to our eye to be an original imperfection
• Brass has vintage patina
At Bixley, forgotten treasures are looking for a home to call their own. We love the "as is" quality of vintage pieces and hope you do too. Please read our description carefully and take a good look at our photos. We'll do our best to point out any of the bumps and bruises of age.
