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.
