Description: A brown earthenware inkwell. It has a cylindrical well with a top that rises slightly to the centre. There is a round lip at the centre top.

An inkwell is a small jar or container, often made of glass, porcelain, silver, brass, or pewter, that is used for holding ink in a place convenient for the person who is writing. This particular inkwell is made from earthenware. The artist or writer dips his brush or dip pen into the inkwell as needed or uses the inkwell as the source for filling the reservoir of his fountain pen._ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkwell_
