Ink Well - Stoneware, circa 1880 Reg. No: LL 5554
- This brown, salt glazed ink well was excavated at Casselden Place in 2003. It is similar to a penny ink well but a little more squat.
Writing implements, found throughout Little Lon, indicate that writing was a commonplace activity. The pens, pencils and inkwells are a tantalizing reminder of words forgotten long ago.
- SIMILAR TO PENNY INK WELL BUT MORE SQUAT
