MANUFACTURE FROM THE XIX CENTURY

Inkwell with seahorses.

Bronze. 15,5 x 14,5 x 14,5 cm

Lovely bronze-coated inkwell. It features a ribbed cup held by three seahorses. Three swans are present on the cap, showing off their webbed feet linked by garlands. A faun is sitting on the top: his Pan flute is the cap's grip.

A truly remarkable and original item that brings together Renaissance-era motifs, re-elaborating them in the context of nineteenth century's historicism.
