About this object

3 Ink wells in ink well holder with 1891 written on the underside of the wooden pen holder. This consists of a metal handle with stand at one end and 2 prongs at other which has wooden varnished tray attached. Tray has grooves for sitting pens on and below is attached a metal piece with three rings which swivel around or screw. Tray has a semi circular cut out so that ink-well being used can be removed while other 2 wells are under tray. Each ink well is made from glass in a plant pot shape. The rim at top is wider than base so it will sit in the holder. The lid of each inkwell sits into the bottom and has a hole in the middle to dip the pen in.
