The inkstand (a) in neoclassical style consists of two glass liners inside two gilt-brass inkwells with hinged covers having flower finials. The containers feature two framed ovals each having what appear to be jasperware insets with figures of Greek goddesses, but which are actually metal with figures in relief and enameled white against a sage-green ground. One goddess is Hope with an anchor; the other may be Hestia with altar and flowering branch.
