MINT BARREL INKWELL WITH ORIGINAL VIOLET INK CONTENTS - 2 1/16"h

ITEM 2207. "PAT OCT 17 1865" BARREL INK RETAINING PARTIAL VIOLET INK CONTENTS, (Covill# 669), aquamarine, footed barrel, 2 1/16"H x 1 15/17"L x 1 7/16"D, applied square collar, mint. American, C. 1865, a scarce little ink that is rarely encountered with the original contents.

This cute little inkwell is not colored but as shown in the attached images, the piece retains the great majority of its original contents, lending it the appearance of a "colored" ink. Inks of the Civil War era are seldom encountered with their original contents, making this one heck of a rare survivor and an awfully fine figural ink.

SOLD!
