Bronze inkwell, goddess figure with snake at her feet on a plinth base, standing above a glass inkwell with gilt bronze or brass lid, flanked by covered urns topped by bronze male figures (one with chin on hand, the other with caricature wide mouth). Central pen tray. The central figure may be Hygeia, Greek goddess of health, who is often depicted with a snake. She was originally holding something in her hand which has since broken off. French, late 19th century. Condition: Figure's plinth appears to have been glued or reglued to base, missing element from hand.
