Kalamos Inkwell - 18 cm x 13.5 cm - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter

- +

With its a soft patina, creating an 'antiqued' look that belies its true age, so much in fact that it features in the film Don Matteo as an authentic period piece, this pretty handcrafted pewter inkwell is an iconic desktop ornament. 

It evokes traditions of scribes and letter writing and a sense of timeliness and calm on a desk or table-top in a study. In these days of finger scrolling, screen rolling and prescriptive text, the thought of a handwritten letter, with thick strokes of Indian ink, has a welcome romance and nostalgia about it.

The lidded ink pots are great for storing ink, separating red and black for ledgers, and a calligrapher could have a field day with such a piece, however, it is extremely decorative and could also house paperclips and the like...
