ADORE THIS!

The price for this brass inkwell kept me from ordering it for a long time. However, I got tired of cleaning up ink when someone would bump my pretty crystal inkwell that did not have a screw-on top. I finally screwed up my nerve enough to order this inkwell & I am so glad that I did! It's easy to fill (I got an eye dropper at the drug store). It securely closes, so no worries if someone bumps it! The opening is wide enough so that an oblique holder and nib easily can dip into the ink. It is weighted on the bottom, so it would be very had to knock it over. I like it so much, I've ordered a second one, to put some colored ink in for a project that I am doing. I am totally satisfied with this inkwell!

Excellent Purchase

I purchased the stainless steel version of the McCaffery inkwell and I'm very pleased so far. It is smaller than I expected (though I suppose if I had paid attention to the dimensions provided this wouldn't be so), however, I find the size perfect. It has a wide mouth that accommodates my oblique holder without any trouble. The item is solid and well-machined. After filling it with ink, I screwed on the top, turned it over and the held it on its side while running a paper towel around the edge. Not a drop leaked.
