Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Unique, Large, and Multi-Colored Desk Set for Fountain Pens.
Dating around 1900 and definitely handmade, this beauty features:
A rectangular form with ink well and sander on the top sides, penholder in the top center, two center drawers, and two side drawers capped by arches and opened by little bears as pulls. These are hollow with a small open dish below the bears that lets the ink pour out. The set is capped on top with two columns holding a grape arbor with grape vining and clusters of grapes coming across, and continuing forward to form the pen holders.
The color is a gorgeous blend of blue, brown, black, and green.
This is imposing, measuring 12 3/4" wide, 7 1/4" deep, and 8 1/2" tall.
Very Good Condition with some professional restoration. A 3 1/2" line on the left side toward the front (closeup), and some restoration to the edges of the two bottom side drawers (closeup). Part of the right side of the back grape arbor and the right side of the pen holder came off as two pieces and were restored except for a couple edges of the grape leaves (closeups). All the restoration is professional.
