Vintage Notre Dame Souvenir Inkwell - Art Deco

$75.00

This vintage inkwell is a souvenir of Paris' famous Notre Dame cathedral. It is made of spelter metal and features a beautifully modeled miniature building of the Notre Dame Cathedral with a small image of the Arc de Triomphe (Arc of Triumph) on the inkwell's lid. The word "Paris" is printed on one side.

This vintage inkwell features gorgeous Art Deco lines and styling. It contains a pen rest. This inkwell is one of a line of similar souvenir miniature building Art Deco inkwells produced at that time, which featured the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and Le Sacre Coeur Basilica.

This souvenir of the City of Lights has its original inkwell insert, making it 100% usable. We estimate it was manufactured sometime within the Art Deco period of 1925 - 1939. It was made in France.

Perfect for a miniature building collector, historical building collector, souvenir building collector, souvenir inkwell collector, or calligrapher.

You will receive the inkwell in the photos.
