This inticately cast brass ink stand measures 200 mm (8 inches) square and stands 115 mm (4.5 inches) high, and features a red marble insert. It is a good quality item and weighs 1.8 kg 4 pounds). There is a foundry mark under the base with the latin motto "Carpe Diem" inside a six spoked wheel together with a square and dividers. It is missing the insert to hold the ink and the hinge for the lid is a bit loose, but overall it is in very good condition. Probably French, it dates from the last quarter of the nineteenth century.
