Bronze Cat and Mice Inkwell*
Cleverly designed oval bronze inkwell and pen tray with a pair of feeding mice mirroring each other, their long tails circling the ends of the tray.
They are cheekily taking advantage of the fact that the rather fierce looking cat behind them is facing the other way.
Lifting the back of the cat’s head reveals the little glass ink pot.
Probably Austrian, from the turn of the 19th/20th centuries and in good condition, showing an aged patina with a few minor marks which could probably be cleaned if thought necessary.
Approximately 29 cm wide.
