    Important pen holder inkwell, offering two small bronze receptacles chiseled in beaded friezes and plant decorations. They have lids held at the back, and the interiors are gilded.
    In the back, a young woman is seated, resting on her left elbow, her right hand resting on her ankle. Looking down, she seems thoughtful. Her hair is pulled up and combed into a bun. A long drape hugs her figure, which we guess delicate, and leaves her shoulders and arms adorned with bare jewels.
    These three elements in silvered bronze rest on a sea-green marble plinth. At the front, the latter is logically shaped into a bowl, thus creating a place initially reserved for the feathers. We will also appreciate the movements of this terrace, generously carved in curves and grooved around its edges.
    This beautiful decorative object ends with four half-ball feet, also designed in sea green marble.
    This inkwell can remain close to its original function and accommodate pens, pencils and other writing-related accessories, or reinvent itself, by becoming, for example, an astonishing jewelry storage born from the romantic era.
