This listing is for a rare antique French Art Nouveau figural lion inkwell signed Ad Nellons, dating to the 1890s. This stunning inkwell has been cast in pewter, in the form of a lion cast in deep relief.
The detailing of the lion is almost three dimensional and resting on rocks with a sunburst design in the background. The head of the lion lifts to reveal the inkwell with a second hidden in a tree stump. Behind the lion is a pen rest and to the front is a pin tray.
The inkwell has been signed “Ad Nellons” around the base by the tree stump. The base is marked “Depose No 50”.
