Ottoman Brass Inkwell and Pen Case Qalamdan

$2,950.00

Call For Location | 203-325-8070


Exceptional Turkish etched brass Qalamdan, a traveling scribe's inkwell and pen case. The beautiful dome topped inkwell is rare, it is attached by chain to the pen case, consisting of two tubes for quill or reed pens. Clearly a well used artifact, with black ink still coloring the brass. It can be polished off, but I love the evidence it was much loved and used for many years.  Circa 1850.

The pen holder has various small dents on the surface from use which only adds to character of this item. Please examine photos.
