A handsome and substantial novelty inkwell in the form of a running Ostrich standing on an oval shaped base with a naturalistic base incorporating two "rocks" acting as a pen rest. I am including the traditional (modern) dip pen to finish off the look of the inkwell.
A hefty piece, cast in solid brass with the inkwell opening at the top revealing the original frosted glass and brass ink chamber. The Ostrich retains two original glass eyes, a true sign of quality.
Dating to the late Victorian era, dating to c.1880 / 1890.
Excellent condition measuring 7" x 5 3/4" x 5" tall.
