ITEM 2838. UMBRELLA INKWELL WITH HAND CARVED WOODEN STOPPLE, medium green, octagonal, pontil scar, 2 1/2"H x 2 3/8"D, sheared and tooled mouth, about mint (pinhead-sized lip edge flake with no measurable depth). American, C. 1850.

Deeper in color than most "green" umbrella inks, this heavily whittled ink retains a period wooden stopple (cased in soft metal at the base) that fits the mouth PERFECTLY. The bottle is fresh to the market from a Connecticut estate and there is a good possibility that the piece was blown at the Willington Glass Works, as the glass color and pontil scar are very similar (if not identical) to inks with a solid Willington provenace.
