I am sure these will bring back memories for many. These are ink wells from old school desks. A little before my time of course! They are housed in small rimu wood blocks. Am not sure if this is how they were originally or if the rimu blocks are a later addition to extend their useful life.
These are a little different from the rest of my ink well collection – but I felt they would be a nice piece of nostalgia to have in the shop. It is nice to have such pieces dotted about the shop – many an interesting conversation has started around these items.
