This fascinating, antique, figural inkwell features a Terrier dog, perched on a cushion, smoking a water pipe. The round cushion sits on an elaborately adorned and detailed base. The cushion portion of the base opens to reveal the inkwell, which contains a glass insert, that is in perfect condition, and appears to be original to the inkwell. This wonderfully whimsical inkwell is made of a heavyweight metal, perhaps cast iron. The entire inkwell is in excellent condition. We have had this inkwell in our shop before, but this is the first time that we have ever seen one that has the words “He’s Caught” along the top surface of the lid, in front and to the right of the dog. If you collect antique inkwells, this would be a excellent choice to add to your collection. If it is this quirky pup that intrigues you…well, we can certainly understand why.
