Vintage Art Nouveau Solid Brass Two Pot Ink Well Desk Set


1 in stock


Here is a beautiful two pot brass inkwell made in Japan incredibly decorated with flowing water and seashell design typical of the art nouveau period. Has two ink wells with attached lids, and a space for the pens. It is large and heavy and would make a great display piece.

The brass has only been lightly cleaned and not polished so it has a nice vintage patina. Since it is solid brass it will polish up nicely if you so desire.

It measures 8" wide and 7 " deep and 2.5" high. It is in pretty good condition no dents or dings , some minor wear or tarnish that would likely clean up if polished. It looks like the inkwells had finials at one time.

Please look at our other vintage items as we would love to combine shipping.
