More about this item
Cast and gilded bronze inkwell -- complete with ceramic insert / liner for ink -- made in Germany in the Secessionist style popular at the turn of the 20th century. This piece has a hinged lid that opens to reveal a removable, white ceramic ink pot which has a few rough edges but is otherwise in great vintage condition; no cracks or repair. The inkwell rests on five feet, and has indentations to hold a pen and extra nibs.
The inkwell's ornamentation is primarily geometric, in keeping with the Vienna Secession's aesthetic, but the addition of "Glasgow Roses" at each corner relate to the Secessionist designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Josef Maria Olbrich.
The underside is a rich gold color while the outer surface has an older, darker patina with gilding loss and some staining (ink??).
This is a lovely object with a harmonious overall aesthetic firmly rooted in European design history.
