Each Inkstand has a Flower Brick attached in the back, separate to the stand, allowing for water to be added for fresh cut flowers. The inkwells rest within their box which is attached to the top working plate. The top plate also includes: a mixing pad, pencil and paint brush holes, as well as an ink loop to rest wet paint or calligraphy brushes. In addition, the top plate is removable so it is easy to wash and replace. The drawer below is also functional, sliding in and out. Within the inkstand itself, there is a hidden area for secret love letters.
