Monumental Baccarat Art Nouveau Standish Inkwell Nautical Theme C 1910 For Sale
Up for sale is a Rare Baccarat Art Nouveau Standish / Inkwell. The piece is not complete. It is missing a mermaid that sits on the top. I have done some research for this piece and at sale these realize roughly 10 to 12 thousand when they are complete. I have seen asking prices of up to $48,500. I would assume that any mermaid should fit on the piece as there is just a post where the mermaid fits on. The piece is very large and very heavy. It measures 15" wide 8" deep and 6" in height. The inkwell covers are in the shape of a seashell and a compass. The glass inserts are present. The bottom of one of the inkwells is marked Baccarat. There is scratching to the base, which is pretty understandable due to the weight of the piece. Could be polished if one were so inclined. I would imagine that somewhere out there someone has just the mermaid ( glass does break ).
