Description

A very nice old ink blotter -Moore's Improved Elastic Blotter.  In 1865 a Charles C. Moore received U.S. Patent No. 51,337 for a rocker blotter.  I would think this is an improvement on that blotter. 

The finish on the top has a few rough areas.  The knob unscrews and the top comes off to fix your blotting paper to the bottom.  On the top wood, at the base of the knob is Moore's Improved Elastic Blotter.  Blotter measures approx. 3 1/4 x 5 3/4 inches.
