    This old ink well has a really cool frog opening and a crystal holder. It has a few spots to hold your Feather or writing utensil. This has no markings. Has anyone seen such things or no more info?

      Sweet !! Must be some marks on the bottom or somewhere......?

      What -- you lost the Feather to it? How can one write a letter then......LOL

      It might be a Vintage inkwell ....but the holder is for several calligraphy pens, maybe?

      See this link as to what I mean, hope link works as I can NOT preview to see if it does..... ;-(

      Yes you're right it's to hold calligraphy pens. Unfortunately the bottom is worn away so no markings do you know who could of made it

      I have always like these. Here is what I found.
      Barometric Ink Stand (with pen rack), patented 1861-67 by Thomas Hudson, advertised 1878-81, still marketed in 1905. In 1905, it was manufactured by Cutter Tower Co., Boston, MA, which said at the time that the inkstand had been sold continuously since 1861. officemuseum.com
