Additionally, two curved-sided compartments to either side of the center console are probably designed to hold stationery. What fun it would be to have your own personalized stationery printed up to put this holder to use again!
The companion blotter has a solid brass handle framed by an inlaid boxed design that matches the feet on the inkwell, as well as a smaller pierced design along the outer border of the blotter. Condition: Both pieces are in very good vintage condition, with no signs of damage and no repairs or attempts to clean or refinish. The metal has an original unpolished patina with some staining or yellowing to the varnish.
The wood has an open grain common to 100 year old wood. Carefully packaged for safe arrival. I've been specializing in quality art and antiques for the past 40 years.
