My Favorite Things: Vintage Bankers Ink Bottle Holder

When I've been out poking around in antique stores, I always keep my eye out for vintage ink wells and Bankers desk sets and if the price is right, I snatch them up.  I have four now, but this one really IS my favorite.  The opening is big enough to hold a jar of walnut ink and there are two pen rests.  This one is marked Sengbush No. 300 on the bottom.

Someday I'll show you the other three.  I do keep them all on my desk for various uses.  They make me happy.
