Art Nouveau Maiden Inkwell*
Pretty little silver-plated Art Nouveau inkwell and pen rest with the face of a young maiden reclining amongst flowers and leaves.
Showing a typically fluid design, with the stems and leaves swirling around and across the tray, then downwards to form the feet.
The hinged lid of the inkwell also shows a swirled pattern and, when raised, exposes a green glass inkwell that we are assured is original.
Unmarked but nicely made with the silver plating in good order.
Circa 1900-1905, probably originating from Germany and with an overall length of around 19 cm.
