This art nouveau antique camel inkwell is an exotic desk accessory for the discriminating individual. It is a beautiful example of the early Art Deco period.

This work of art is made of "Spelter", which is an antique trade name for a zinc - lead alloy. It was a popular medium for art nouveau ornaments and art deco small statues and figurines.

The camel inkwell stands approximately 5 !/2 inches tall and is approximately 9 inches long. It is in very good estate condition and includes the original glass insert which is free of chips or cracks. There is some flaking to the cold painted surface, which is typical of spelter.

This sitting camel wears a decorated saddle and has a hinge which serves as the cover for the glass insert, but the hinge needs to be reattached.
