Today we are happy to offer for sale a rare antique Tiffany Studios Zodiac bronze partner-size inkwell.
Tiffany Studios (not to be confused with Tiffany & Co.) was a decorative arts company run by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The company was active in various forms from 1878 until 1933, and was best known for its stained glass windows, Tiffany lamps, mosaic installations, and luxury items such as desk sets.
This early 1900’s inkwell is finely crafted and detailed. The large, partner-size square piece is crafted of beautifully patinated bronze with lovely-time earned warm patina. The inkwell has low relief Aesthetic decorations representing the Zodiac signs, and double attached pen trays. The piece is signed on the bottom “Tiffany Studios New York/1073”.
Inkwell presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear, tarnish, and patina commensurate with age. Please note the top and inner container are missing. This rare Tiffany Studios inkwell will make a fine addition to any fine desk accoutrement collection. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 10-3/4″ square, 2-7/8″ in height
