Old Paris Inkwells

I've taken an interest in Old Paris ink wells lately.  I have bought three.  I think there is a collection growing in these.  

This one is what one would expect in Old Paris. One container is for the ink and the other is for the pounce ( or "sand" )  to dry the ink on the paper.  

This one has a place for the man's pocket watch to rest at night. The two containers are missing.  I am sure I can find replacements.

This one is complete with a family crest. 

Here are the parts taken out...inks with pounce container in the middle. 


  1. Oh yes those are wonderful. I have always liked them and when I was teaching a grandson to do calligraphy he decided he wanted one for his desk to hold his pens.
