Ancient Artifact Review 60 : Antique Ottoman Pen Case ( Divit) dated 1351 AH

This is an old Ottoman Pen case / Qalamdan ( Divit) which measures  8" long with an inkwell at one end. It is beautifully decorated with floral motives. Made of brass and dated 1351 AH or equivalent to 1932 CE. I don't see any Tugra motif on this case unlike my other Qalamdans.

Compare with another bigger Ottoman Divit / Qalamdan

Dim : 8in
