Faience Inkwell, Antique Art Supply, Vintage Ink Holder, Desk Accessory, Calligraphers Tool
Here's an inkwell worthy of a calligrapher and bound to inspire the most flowing work. This vintage faience inkwell has two pieces; a large well and a substantial holder, fit for a writer of important missives! One can imagine a Viennese woman writing a note at her desk, surrounded by flowers and carved Rococo furniture as she dips her pen into the well.
It's a hand-painted piece with some worn edges that add to its sense of history. Someone used it regularly; it still had remnants of ink when it was acquired but has since been thoroughly cleaned.
This is a heavy, two-part piece. It's an antique and there's a little wear at one corner, but it's in good condition and is about 8" wide and 5" high.

If you are a getting married and want books for your tables, please look at the shop inventory first. I can take any of the book sets and double, triple or quadruple them (or more) and will provide a discount.
If you found a set you love but it's too small, or too large, let me know and we'll make it the size you need.
What I can't do is create multiple book sets from scratch and send photos on speculation. Each book set has been carefully matched and it takes a surprising amount of time—which is my joy! In some cases, I'll hold books for months until I find the right set for it. I'm not good at following someone else's vision, but if there's a set that already sings to you we'll work beautifully together.
