Bronze inkwell

Greek Bronze Inkwell

Inkwell with original chain and lid

Greek, 4th to 3rd Century B.C.

Bronze, total height with suspension chain: 6 3/4 inches

Remarkable in its preservation, this inkwell is preserved intact with its suspension chain and ring, and lid, which can would hang to the side of the inkwell on its slightly longer chain to be out of the way.  This is one of the best I’ve seen anywhere.
