An interesting, rare antique travel inkwell.

WW1 era this little inkwell has been designed in the form of a military peaked officers cap.

It us made from brass with a black fabric covered card peak and a paper band around it with a steel buckle, the base is lined with black felt.

Internally it has a sprung brass top cover and retains the original small glass liner.

A fantastic piece of functional history with I am sure many stories that it could tell.

Good used condition overall with wear, it has been well used and shows its age and use, there is wear to the card / fabric peak and band, overall signs of use and wear, surface wear, internally the top spring is rusted, glass liner is stained with ink, closes and opens smoothly.

Approx 1" height, 2.25" width and 2.75" depth / length
