One of the loveliest decorative desk accessories ever, this Antique Old Paris French Figural Double Inkwell is of such fine, luxury quality. Unsigned, as many of the early Old Paris pieces were, these early pieces are of Sevres quality. So detailed, and modeled by a master artist with a light hand. Hand painted and hand enameled with exceptional care. The young woman is sitting on a tree stump, a shawl drawn over her shoulders. She has gathered pears and other fruit in a cloth, and is pressing a lush pear to her heart. {of all fruit, pears are her favorite!}

Her expression is so lovingly painted, her hair in a braided bun at the nape of her neck. She wears a lovely pink gown with a hand enameled and gilded design. Two white baskets sit on either side of her on a lawn of grass, over the centuries they have lost their lids, but I just couldn't resist her. This reminds me of the the work of Jacob Petit, master porcelain producer. Some wear to the gilt here and there. A lovely decorative addition to add some spice to your collection of antique sterling and crystal inkwells, she will gladly hold your favorite gold pen, and perhaps some paper clips, or fill both baskets with a single rose for your vanity.

  • Measures 5-3/4" x 3" x 5-1/4"h.
