Ralph Lauren Silver and Crystal Inkwell for $9,200

Although this belongs to the extinct category for desktop items, the Silver and Crystal Inkwell from the fashion house Ralph Lauren is bound to find a place on your desk for its luxurious appeal. Obviously, you aren’t going to fill an inkwell worth $9,200 with some real blue ink only. This broad bottomed crystal bottle sports a silver lid to prevent contamination, evaporation, accidental spillage, and excessive exposure to air.

But since using a pen that needs to be dipped in an ink well, again and again, is passé, this elegantly styled bottle is truly just a piece of art.
