Long rectangular inkwell of cast iron, the base enclosed by a row of alternating Gothic-style ornaments—a fluted column with a leafy element on top and a shield with Gothic tracery—on either side an outwardly scrolling handle comprised of foliate motifs, the central inkwell with on either side two bulbous cut glass containers with cast iron covers that are decorated in a stylized organic pattern, the finials in the form of stylized leaves, in the middle a cast iron container with tapered, fluted sides and a flat cover similar to the other two and decorated with stylized organic motifs, with same leaf finial.
