This is a 19th qalamdan or ink and quill holder. The patina on this case is quite rich, I have made no attempt to clean this. It measures 9 1/2" long, and the attached inkpot is approximately 1 1/2" square. A very substantial piece, it weighs nearly a pound! Scribes used to tuck these cases into their belts, and the inkpots kept them from slipping through. It's floral design appears to be Turkish. A unique and historical item for your desk, or collection.
