Antique WMF Jugendstil Sphinx Theme Egyptian Revival Inkstand with Glass Liner

About

Stylish, rare and mint Egyptian Revival brass desk piece. This completely original WMF inkstand dates from circa 1900. To find such a rare antique in museum quality condition, again, felt like a blessing. The Egyptian Sphinx is a sign of wisdom and protection. Combined with the winged disc it represents the symbol of Ra. The ancient Egyptians believed that a winged disc or gemstone would protect the wearer from evil.
