Check out this 3D model of the inkwell.
A decorative brass inkwell and pen rest featuring a bust of Neptune, Roman God of the sea.
While the age of the object is unestablished, it was certainly used at the Bell Rock Lighthouse – some 12 miles off Arbroath – from at least 1910 until the station was modernised in 1963. It was kept in the station’s library which was located immediately below the lightroom.
