Description: A fine Art Deco double inkstand, attributed to Bradley & Hubbard Co., Meriden Connecticut. The architectural form is topped by two inkwells spaced slightly apart and separated by a “U” shaped valley, each well (inserts missing) has a hinged cover shaped like a forward sweeping pyramid. The sharp corner edges of the wells sweep down to the wide rectangular shaped base, the front of which has a slightly raised edge which has a large elongated “C” shaped opening that serves as the pick-up point for the integral pen rest.
Dimensions: 8 ½” long x 4 ¾” wide x 2 ¾” high
Condition: Very Good Condition
For Accuracy Only: there is some light pitting to the brass finish – the patina has been left as found for the buyers cleaning preferences. Glass inkwell inserts not included.
