Seller: uniqueantiquesusa (2,686) 100%, Location: Kingsport, Tennessee, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 262945985106 Welcome to our listing for a Handsome Federal Style Vintage Antique Brass Ink Well Pot Gentleman's Desk Top Accessory. This good looking, useful home décor accent piece features the wonderfully stylized scallop shell of Venus on all four corners of the catch plate, and is surrounded by similarly understated design elements, giving this an element of masculinity and reserve. It measures 4" x 4" along each side of the catch tray x 2 1/2" tall to the top of the finial on the lid. The ink well is 1 1/4" deep x 1 1/2" wide and can easily be repurposed as a ring box or simply a very good looking decorative desktop accessory that harks back to a time when beautifully poetic and deeply sincere letter writing was still highly regarded as something thoughtful, heartfelt and extremely special.Thank you for having a look at our items.

Froo www.froo.com | Froo Cross Sell, Free Cross Sell, Cross promote, eBay Marketing, eBay listing Apps, eBay Apps, eBay Application Condition: Used, Condition: Warm, age-deepened patina to the brass with all manner of age and wear apparent. There is a slight dent to the edge of the ink well cap making the top imperfectly round, but it does sit well on the rim of the pot. There is deep darkening to the inner lid and pot from frequent use with ink, and the brass insert seems permanently affixed to the inside of the casing. The hinge is good and works well and the entire piece appears to us to be in very good, well-worn, used condition. Please see our photos to decide for yourself prior to bidding or buying.
