Antique devil inkwell: "David Pescovitz:
I dig this kooky-creepy devil inkwell up for auction on eBay. Current bid is $202.01. From the auction listing:
19th Century devil inkwell of handcarved wooden construction by a master craftsman. I believe this to be of European origin - Black Forest or Swiss. Quality of carving and fit of the lid are exceptional. Not a nick or chip or scratch. Original paint. Original well looks to be porcelain. Ink still on inner rim around well and lid shows honest wear. Total height is 4'. Satisfaction guaranteed.
