Silver & Tortoiseshell Ink Well
Item BE8: Gorgeous light to dark rust color with black, tortoiseshell on base and well lid.
Frame is silver with brass ‘knob’ trim, resting on silver knob feet. Well is silver with
brass hinge, and encases two thin glass ink wells (no chips or cracks). Considering
the age, the overall condition is amazingly beautiful. Tortoiseshell is becoming
more and more rare as it comes from the outer shell of the Hawksbill tortoise, which
is now endangered, thus making this an even more rare piece of yesteryear. 9”L x 6 1/4” D x 2 3/4” H (spectacles not included)
Payment: I prefer PayPal, and I do not ship outside the continental U.S.
