An extremely rare and collectable black forest wooden bear double inkwell holder. The bear design is quite common among black forest items.
However, it is less common to find a 'double' inkwell. Especially in such great condition. Beautifully crafted, completely hand carved including the bear figurine in the 19th century. Both with original cut glass inkwells - which are made with the finest attention to detail and fit the holder perfectly.
The inkwells appear to have been unused. Some slight discolouration to the base metal hinge.
The bear's head is on a hinge which you can open to reveal a small storage area. May have been used to keep your quill tips in.
Front leaf decoration design holds your quill pen. A great piece for any black forest collector.

Very good. The hinge on the bear is the original and slightly lose. Someone has decoupaged the underside of it.
