An item I've been admiring for a while locally, this Art Nouveau inkwell is now part of my collection.
It is missing its metal lid, but that's why I could afford it! Still a lovely piece, despite the issue, & I hope to come up with an innovative solution to the lack of a lid in the future.
It is made from green glass with an intense iridescent finish. The pattern has panels of festoons alternating with stripes. I really like the way that the base is so elegantly finished - it looks like a medallion or mandala.
Measures around 10 cm across the base & around 3 cm tall.
Possibly by Kralik. Bohemian for sure!
