fresh and renewed – crockery inkwell

October 2, 2013

For our Fresh and Renewed post today we have another Aberfoyle Antique Market find, a crockery inkwell. The moment I spied this little gem I had visions of a mini flower arrangements full of texture and large blooms.

I’m sad to report that the glaze on the inkwell has hairline cracks in it which leak. Despite the leak I finished the floral piece but this will be it’s last. Good thing I collect crockery that I display in my home so this pretty vessel will not be wasted. It would look adorable filled with dried flowers as well – I might have to do that for home!
