Fine Hinged Top on Unusual Vintage Crackle Glass Inkwell :
This good condition crackle glass piece has a clear glass finial on the top of the clear crackle glass hinged lid of what I believe is an inkwell. The bottom portion looks to me to be light yellow crackle glass or perhaps it appears that way because it is a thicker glass or because it reflects the brass on the hinged top. I don't believe this has ever held ink because it is nice and clean with no residue remaining.
The inkwell is 4 1/2" high and has an approximate diameter of 2 1/2" on the bottom. There is an extra ridge of glass on the bottom as if the piece may have fit into some kind of a base. The piece is in good condition with no chips, cracks (except those expected with crackle glass), and the hinged brass top is nicely made and fits tightly.
