Vintage Brass & Leather Box with Pair of Crystal Inkwells


This vintage Italian leather covered box has a large medallion featuring the Medici family crest flanked by two cherubs. Brass caps protect each corner of this strong small box that houses a pair of crystal inkwells with leather-covered lids. We found this box and inkwells at an antique market in Florence.  

Condition is very good with wear consistent with age and use; a few pins around brass rim of the box have been replaced; the interior of the box has ink stains; the inkwells have minor nicks on two corners – see photos.

Dimensions: Box 5.25” l x 3.25” w x 3.5” h; Inkwells: 1.875” x 1.875” x 3”h
