Summary:
This light brown, salt glazed ink well was excavated at Casselden Place in 2003. It was manufactured by Harwood's, London.

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.
