Ancient Artifact Review 64 : Antique Ottoman Qalamdan / Pen Case / Inkwell ( Divit) dated 1950 CE

This is an old Ottoman Qalamdan / Divit or Pen case which measures  8" long with an inkwell at one end. It is beautifully decorated with floral motives. Made of brass and dated. Even though the date is not clear but I could say its 1950 CE based on similar Qalamdan which I have.
This Qalamdan is similar to the one I have in this link

Compare with another bigger Ottoman Divit & a pen case from Iran Qajaf era
