ITEM 2108. "FARLEY'S / INK",
clear olive green with a slight amber tone, octagonal, pontil
scar, 1 7/8"H x 2"D, sheared and tooled mouth, a mint
bottle with a pin-point sized spot of mold seam roughness. Blown
at a Stoddard Glass Works, Stoddard, NH, 1845-1860, scarce.
This exceptional Farley's ink is not amber, but rather a clear
shade of olive green with some amber tones. This is a rare color
for a Farley's Ink, as the great majority of the examples we
have encountered are blown in a muddy shade of golden olive amber.
The discriminating collector will also note the bottle's exceptionally
bold embossed lettering and the wonderfully crude mouth treatment.
If you are looking for a top-of-line Farley's, this is the one!
