Siamese Cat Ink Well

IMGP0416

How astonishingly cute is that?

I can’t guess at how old it may be.  When did Siamese cats become popular?  I don’t know.

It particularly appeals to me because I’ve had a couple of Siamese cats.  They weren’t the dark seal-point type of this ink well, they were the much paler lilac-point but they did have the same bright blue eyes.

Anyway, this is a delightful thing to have on one’s desk.  The only thing that I don’t like is that when you open the ink well it looks like the cat has had a horrible and terminal accident.

    If your Siamese Cats are capable of wondering; looking-on they may wonder:

    “Ewww… Are you going to decapitate me next then dip that pen-thing into my neck too?!”

    The effect would be enhanced by filling the ink-well with juicy blood-red ink.

    Just kidding 🙂

    This is an adorable piece. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Regards, David
