Bronze Bird Inkstand

The very BEST Victorian inkstand I have ever had!  The amazing design features a bird hovering over a nest with three eggs and a rodent on the edge of the nest.  Other exciting motifs include berries, flowers, leaves and a scarab on the right side and  the top of each of the ink covers.   There is even a fly on the back side of each of the covers!   There is a pull out bronze seal in the middle of the stand hidden in the design (see photo).  This heavy solid bronze inkwell is a work of art!

Circa:  1850.    Dimensions:   6″ H   x   11″ L   x   9″ D.   Condition:  The bronze is in excellent condition.  It even retains some of the original glit.  One of the glass bottles has a chip at the rim which cannot be seen when the cover is on it.    Price:   $2150165_1 165_3 165_4 165_5 165_6 165_7 165_8 165_9 165_10
