Vintage Indian Ink Well


Our Vintage Indian Ink Wells are timeless treasures that evoke the elegance of a bygone era. Each ink well is a testament to India's rich cultural heritage and artisanal craftsmanship, meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans.

Made from high-quality brass, these ink wells feature exquisite detailing and ornate designs that showcase the artistry and sophistication of Indian metalwork. With their aged patina and timeless appeal, they add a touch of vintage charm to any space.

Originally used by scholars, writers, and artists to hold ink for writing and drawing, these brass ink wells have now become sought-after collectibles and decorative accents. Whether displayed on a desk, shelf, or mantle, they serve as reminders of a time when handwritten correspondence was an art form in itself.

Each ink well in our collection tells its own story, with unique characteristics and variations that make it truly one-of-a-kind.
