I found this little Austrian Art Nouveau Inkwell few weeks ago, i am ready to post it, after do some research i am confident to mention, this Inkwell was attributed to STOLZLE, i will love to say LOETZ, but no not this one, very nice green iridescent colour, with the lid representing a figure with horn, the same figure on the metal mount surrounding the glass, i have not test the mount to see if this is silverplate on brass, the lid show lot of wear let me think this inkwell was from late 19 century, early 20 century, the mall insert was present inside.
This inkwell stand 3 inch tall, 2.75 inch wide, no pontil.
Thanks for Viewing.
