We know little about this old Desk Accessory, except that it was made in Austria, has an ornately carved heavy brass top plate and a brass knob. The single word "Austria" is impressed into the wood on the side. There is some very faint lettering on the inside of the brass piece; however, we cannot tell what it says.

In the last photo, you will notice that there are two pieces of blotter paper. One is quite worn; however, the other is in new unused condition. What is interesting is the obvious age of the blotter paper itself. The ad for writing ink definitely dates back a number of years.

There is no damage to this ink blotter, other than it does have some tarnish spots on the brass plate. I prefer to leave the polishing of brass items to the purchaser, as some poeple would rather maintain the older look.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
