1893 World's Columbian Exposition
Inkwell in the shape of the globe (or a ball) with color lithographed paper around the outside that has an aerial view of the fairgrounds with several building pictured on it. Near the bottom is written "Chicago Exposition 1893" When you open it up there is a capped glass inkwell inside. The cap is metal and is attached to the inside with a hinge on one side and a clasp that holds it tight to the glass inkwell. The bottom is marked "Made in Austria". These are hard to find. Size: 2 3/4" diameter. Condition: Extremely Fine. It has most of the paper with only small areas of loss and the paper is browned. The ink well lid should have a stopper in the top that is missing (probably not important if you aren't going to put ink in it).

Winning Bid: $ 165

Estimate: $ 150 - $ 250
