I was helping a friend go thru his grandmoms stuff after she passed away and came across this neat old inkwell.It's in great shape,original condition and great patina.On the outside it is decorated w/little stars resembling * except bigger.On the bottom are is GESETZITCH. I think it's hard to read.the other is GF the middle is an anchor w/ a serpant w/a snakes head and a fin for a tail.I have had no luck finding any info on it.would greatly appreciate any help I can get.thank you ,Holly.

    Found this cool site..."Travel inkwell" seems to fit the piece. I would have never thought of that, who knew? You can also se the variation of the "dolphin and anchor". You're in the ball park!
