This is the inkwell that saw me start a collection – a now rather extensive collection! This one was given to me as a birthday gift by my parents. So I blame them for what has now become a slight obsession – at times a rather expensive obsession!
A road trip around New Zealand directly after receiving this gift turned into a fun search for antique shops along the way and thus the collection grew and grew and grew…
And yes, continues to grow!
Square was the most prevalent design/shape for the inkwells of desk units and writing boxes. This (square) has become the loose “theme” of my collection.
