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.
