Rococo-style faience inkwell

325.00

The richly hued, hand-painted inkwell features floral cartouches on a cobalt-blue ground, gold accents and a central inkwell flanked by pen holders. The blue and pink palette was popular during the Second Empire, and the form is in keeping with similar inkwells made by Coalport in England and Vieux Paris porcelain in France. Unmarked, with old repairs. English or French, c. 1860s. (At some point, a cheeky little kiddo must have dropped pebbles down in through the pen holders... they still tumble around inside the inkwell to this day and I can’t help but smile when I hear it.)

7 inches long, 3 inches deep and 3 inches high
