Thought to have been made probably at the height of the Jugendstil movement in Austria, this heavy brass or bronze (depending on your definition) inkwell has a simple but very attractive fluidity to its form.The piece is offered with a wonderful brass paper knife
On the paid is still affixed the plate of an old library active in the city of Trento in the early 900s.
