This vintage porcelain inkwell has both the printed and incised stylized crown and WG initials on the underside along with incised Dep and AS449. The TMK-1 mark identify it as a Goebel piece that was made between 1935-49. The inkwell is hand painted with an abstract flame pattern in bright orange, blue, yellow, green and black on a white porcelain with a gold toned finial. The unusual deco period inkwell is approximately 3 inches high with a 3 inch diameter. It includes a white porcelain insert that is incised X.S. 453. The insert fits but the number does not correspond with the XS449 incised on the underside of the outer piece. There is a very tiny chip on the rim of the insert and roughness on the downward rim where the insert sits. Neither of these is noticeable except under close examination and the pin sized production flaws do not detract from this distinctive Goebel ink.
