Vintage Yemeni Inkwell and Writing Utensils Box


A rare First part of the 20th century Yemeni writing utensils box with three barrel containers.  Traditionally one held ink, another held sand and I am not sure what the third one held.  The barrels are attached to a box that presumably held writing utensils.  

There is a similar box in the British Museum's collection.

  • Length of the elongated box is 20 cm (8"). 
  • Width is 1.2 cm (1/2") . The compartments are 3.5 cm (1 3/8") in diameter.
  • Height is 5 cm (2").
  • The piece weighs 185 grams.
