Collecting inkwells for many years. This has started as hobby, when I was working for large international companies as IT consultant. My job gave me opportunitity to visit many different countries and build one of the biggest inkwell collection in Russia.
Well known Russian collector, a member of Russian Collectors society, Moscow local collectors club and International Society of Inkwell Collectors.
For the last few years I have organized a number of various exhibitions based on my private collection. I also wrote various articles about antique inkwells (a history of inkwells, interesting stories about inkwells and their owners).
I have a Web site devoted to inkwells (in Russian) --> https://www.leonidbelsky.ru
