A rare vintage wooden ink-well with pen-rest. What makes it rare is not only the age and the fine pyrography believed to be ethnic Bulgarian art but, the fact that it includes the little insert for the ink-well which looks like it is made from porcelain. The source I acquired it from informed me that this was from the 1920s. It shows wear and cosmetic condition appropriate with its age. Given its rarity, it would make an excellent gift for the person that enjoys fine writing instruments and accessories. Please do note the close-up picture of the circular stain. I am not sure if it is formed by someone having placed the cap of an ink-bottle there or how that stain formed. As someone that indulges in inks and fine writing instruments, I have cleansers but, I am hesitant to use them for two reasons: one, I do not want to risk damaging the beautiful color of the piece and two, it adds character to the piece. Do let me know if you have any questions. I will ship it via USPS Priority Mail which is included in your purchase price.
