About The Artist:

With the advent of the fountain pen in the late 19th century, inkwells became less and less popular. Later, the invention of the ballpoint pen in 1939 and the rise in popularity of the Internet rendered most physical letter correspondence unnecessary. However, collectors delight in inkstands as decorative items for their desks or display cabinets. Some are repurposed to hold paperclips, rubber bands or other implements of the modern day office.
