ITEM 2837. PITKIN-TYPE INKWELL, clear yellow olive, cylindrical, 36 ribs swirled to the left, pontil scar, 1 13/16"H x 2 3/8"D, sheared and tooled funnel-type mouth, a mint bottle exhibiting the expected usage wear. Blown at a New England Glass Works, 1783-1820.

This superb Pitkin-type ink is a FRESH find that retains an attic-type patina and features the boldest possible mold impression. As shown, the glass is "clear" enough to pass light with ease and the mouth is crudely formed in a funnel-type fashion. The bottle comes straight from a Connecticut estate where it was obviously well-loved and used over a long period of time.
