This leather on brass inkwell works to the same principal as the Ransome's patent design, made by De La Rue.

It folds to a small flat size for travel but the body is hinged to stand at a right angle to the base, when pushed. It's very smart in dark green leather, highlighted by the brass. The glass ink bottle is locked tight by a cork fitted to the inside of the lid, which is operated by a sprung push button catch. Late 19th century
