SUPERIOR CLEAR OLIVE GREEN PITKIN-TYPE INKWELL

ITEM 2877. PITKIN-TYPE INKWELL, clear olive green, conical, 36 ribs swirled to the left, pontil scar, 1 9/16"H x 2 1/4"D, sheared and tooled mouth, about mint (several small, shallow body flakes). Blown at a New England Glass Works, 1790-1820, scarce.

With its "cut your finger" ribbing and perfect form, this wonderful little Pitkin inkwell stands proud as a superior example of its type. The discriminating collector will also note that the piece is blown in a particularly clear shade of olive green bottle glass that enables the piece to pass light with EASE. The noted body flakes are no greater than skin deep and not much larger than a pinhead - they are the result of natural wear and thus we do not consider them as damage. The bottle is otherwise perfect and the piece remains a startlingly fine example of early glass.
