Description

Edwardian (1901-1910) glass inkwells excavated from historic landfill sites in South Wales. While not in perfect condition with some cracks and chips, these inkwells are still wonderfully decorative and add interest and charm to any home office desk or workspace and still capable of holding ink if so desired.

There are 2 octagonal glass inkwells. The larger of the two has a large chip from the base and is embossed ‘London Hyde’. Height: 65mm, Width: 45mm and made from clear glass. The smaller one is unmarked and has a crack down the length of the neck. Height: 55mm, Width: 40mm and again made from clear glass with a slight greenish cast.

There are 2 round inkwells. The blue glass inkwell has a chipped lip. Height: 75mm, Width: 45mm. The clear glass inkwell is undamaged with no cracks and chips. Height 60mm, Width: 50mm.

Chips, cracks and general ware-and-tear have made rough glass edges that are not sharp but need a little care when handling.
