Silver plated inkwells will dress up any desk. They are heavy and stay solidly upright, even when doing your most gestural of calligraphy. The makers mark on the bottom is stamped Oneida Silversmiths and the nice people at the antique shop say they are Mid-Century Modern (1950's-1960's). They are in great shape for their age with minimal scratches and dings.
Width of base: 3 1/8" Height: 2 1/2" Width of ink holding cup: 7/8" Depth of ink cup: 1 3/16"
These inkwells would be an awesome gift to yourself or your favorite calligrapher. The pen and nibs in the picture are for size reference only. I'm selling the inkwells separately and I have 2 available. Free shipping if you buy with another item in my shop.
