Brass Double Inkwell

Antique double brass inkwell, covered in foliate and animal/bird designs. Each piece of this would have been cast, then hand chased to achieve the fine detail that can be seen. This piece would most likely have been applied to a wood or marble base originally to make up a desk set, but someone in their infinite wisdom over the past 100 years has decided that the base material would be useful for something else! Fortunately this piece was not discarded at the time.

Measures: 20cm wide x 8cm tall x 12cm deep
