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.
Buying as a gift? Why not make it even more special with our engraving service?
It evokes traditions of scribes and letter writing and a sense of timeliness and calm on a desk or table-top in a study.
