Crafted of gilt and patinated bronze, this small Louis XVI-style inkwell features a winged Cupid playing timbales. He is sitting on a stool, flanked by the two timbales decorated with draperies, hiding the inkwells. The putto is resting on an oval base decorated with classical motifs: laurel garlands, flutes and claw feet. This well-balanced design composed of draperies, garlands and fluted friezes is a reminiscent of Louis XVI esthetic, particularly appreciated in the second half of the 19th century. The mythological theme of Cupid playing musical instruments was highly prized during the 18th century and untill the late 19th century period. Cupid decorated then flatware services, clocks, vases, collectibles and desktop pieces, such as our inkstand.
