A brass topped Travel Inkwell with bolt down top.

This is the fairly standard model of portable inkwell that was commonly used with writing slopes or in the fitted secretaire of a campaign chest. The well is glass with a brass top section with lid fixed by a hinged thumb bolt. The brass has developed a good dark patina.

Early to mid 19th Century.

This inkwell is the 2nd from the left on the back row as you view the video.
