Vintage inkwell

I love inkwells, but don’t really buy them (despite the business name, yeah I know), because the weather here is so dry and hot that ink just dries up in a non-airtight inkwell.

However, I found this vintage inkwell on ebay and simply cannot resist. It is so pretty, two birds on an ornate pot on a lovely marble base. There are many beautiful inkwells out there but this was one that made me go ‘Oooh!’

The ink still evaporates pretty quick with it even with the top on, but I’ve since gotten used to it.. oh well. Worth it to feel like Napoleon every time I use it..
