Inkwell from Bell Rock LighthouseYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This object from the collection of the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses is a decorative brass inkwell and pen rest featuring a bust of Neptune, Roman God of the sea.
While the age of the object is unestablished, it was certainly used at the Bell Rock Lighthouse – some 12 miles off Arbroath – from at least 1910 until the station was modernised in 1963. It was kept in the station’s library which was located immediately below the lightroom.
