WHAT A FABULOUS old citrus-shaped inkwell!   It is embossed “1912 Los Angeles Al Malaikah.”    Inkwells are very much sought after, and this one is no exception.    It something like that of a small orange or tangerine. It is a heavy bronze, with deep green painted base, green leaves raised to support the orange colored citrus shape that opens up to hold a glass ink liner - ( it is also old with bubbles and a couple of straw marks!).  This piece commemorates the 38th Imperial Council Session in Los Angeles. California
