A handmade Art Deco pewter inkstand from the 1920s. This absolutely fabulous vintage Art Deco sheet pewter-over-wood desk set consists of the 8-5/8 x 5-1/2" base, with a fitted glass inkwell, a hand-done optical checkerboard Deco motif (stippled and gloss segments) and a matching 8 x 7/8" letter opener, which rests on one of the two channels on the base (the other is for a pen). Also included is a 5-1/8 x 2-1/8" rocking ink blotter with screw-on knob and checkerboard motif. This high quality but unsigned writing stand has bun feet and a cloth covering on the wood base, and it is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs. It has the attractive minor surface irregularities found on handmade pieces - a great addition to your desk.
