ITEM 10127. UMBRELLA INK, bright golden yellow, pontil scar, 2 ½"H, inwardly rolled mouth, mint. American, probably blown at a Mid-Atlantic Glass House, C. 1850, rare color.

Inks with this distinctive "stop sign" indentation on the base (thank you John April) have long been attributed to Baltimore but it's possible that they may have been blown at a Glass House in nearby Philadelphia or Southern New Jersey. This sparkling, attic quality example is blown in a shade of yellow only rarely encountered in an umbrella ink and it's a beautifully whittled piece of glass to boot.

Price: $685 plus shipping and insurance
