Inkwell, pen rests and nib boxes made of pewter, glass and porcelain.

Inkwells & Pen rests

Write with colored ink and a dip pen? Decorate a desk with a beautiful inkwell?

Practical and elegant, inkwells and pen rests are both ideal for aspiring writers, seasoned calligraphers, pen designers as well as for ink and paper lovers. They allow the ink to be contained without drying or evaporating while avoiding ink splashing on the desk.

"I don't dip my pen in an inkwell but in life" wrote Blaise Cendrars
