Inkwell’s date back in time as early as the ancient Egypts, where they were used to write hieroglyphs. They have been in use for many centuries but fell out of use in the early part of the 20th century. This is because of the invention of the reservoir fountain pen, which was much more convenient.

This inkwell dates back around 1900 – 1910 and is an excellent example of art nouveau design for a daily use object. The glass of the inkwell is made by Pallme König who is famous about their veined high-quality Jugendstil glass. The copper lid of the ink well is decorated with a portrait of a woman. It’s incredible that this daily use object is still in marvelous condition.
