Ink Well in the Shape of a Lion: Closed
Leo XIII: An Ink Well in the Shape of a Lion Commemorating His Fiftieth Anniversary as a Priest
Popes/Saints/Individuals: Leo XIII
The inkwell is made of bronze and was commissioned by his family for the public exposition of the firtieth anniversary of Pope Leo XIII as a priest.
It is in very good shape. The head of the lion opens to fill the body of the lion with ink and to dip a fountain pen into it. It is a lion because, of course, Leo is a lion.
