Antique French Ormolu Inkwell Wood Base


Antique French bronze dore` inkwell. The inkwell is bronze gold gilt (ormolu) with a veneered wooden tray and wooden covered well bases. The piece is beautifully hand chased retaining about 80% of the gold gilt. The inkwell measures 8 1/2" at the base by 5 1/2" tall at pen stand. The inkwell bases are unusual as they are carved wood covers to the bronze liners. The inkwell is complete with all the original fittings. The glass liners are present although one liner has suffered a break. We date the inkstand circa 1840 legal antique.
