Inkwell, White CeramicAbout this object
This is a small white ceramic inkwell, and would most likely have come from a school desk.
All New Zealand school children would have progressed from a slate to a dip pen whilst learning to write. The school inkwells were usually filled by an 'Ink Monitor' who was the teacher's chosen child to ensure the ink wells were kept topped up. Along with the required blotting paper, this item has disappeared from school desks, with only the inkwell hole remaining in older furniture.
