MINT NEW ENGLAND UMBRELLA INKWELL - SCARCE OLIVE GREEN

ITEM 2845. UMBRELLA INKWELL, olive green, octagonal, pontil scar, 2 1/2"H x 2 3/8"D, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint bottle with a pinhead-sized spot of lip edge roughness. Blown at a New England Glass Works, 1830-1850, a scarce color for an umbrella ink.

This wonderfully crude New England ink is blown in a relatively clear shade of olive green bottle glass and it is a fine representation of the utilitarian bottles blown in Connecticut and New Hampshire during the first half of the nineteenth century.

SOLD!
