An antique glass inkwell topped with a sterling silver hinged lid and collar, made in England in 1894. This Victorian desk accessory was crafted from heavy glass with canted corners. The hinged lid and silver mounts were hand-engraved with delicate borders terminating in swirls, some resembling waves, and the lid features a ram in profile. This late 19th century design is heavy enough to be a paperweight but would also make an ideal ornament for a vanity, shelf, or side table. 

The silver on the inkwell is hallmarked for London with an 1894 date mark; there is apparently no makers mark. The glass and silver are in good condition overall with some scuffs, rough spots at the edges, and scratches particularly on the base, The piece measures 3 in. H x 2.63 in. W x 2.75 in. L.
