A large Travel Inkwell with the case made of leather on pressed brass.
On opening the case, you expect there to be 2 inkwells and perhaps a pen wipe due to the size. However, this version is a little different. It has one glass inkwell with a sprung padded lid, a compartment with hinged lid for stamps. a pen wipe and a small roller blotter.
The leather used has been passed through a rolling machine to give it a grained effect and the brass to the interior has been engraved. Early 20th Century.
