Large German Silvered bronze inkwell-silver shows minor wear-ceramic retort is gone-no repairs-piece comes apart for transport-ca 1860s-very ornate and detailed casting with masks and rich intricate design-inkwell is surmounted by two putti on orbs--this is type of inkwell that was used at important official event signings- e.g.,treaties and surrender documents-11 inches in diameter and 9 inches high=believed to be unique
