ITEM 3358. MASTER INK BOTTLE, purple
amethyst, cylindrical, smooth base, 6 5/8"H x 2 1/4"D,
applied mouth with pour spout, dug and lightly cleaned retaining
some minor ground wear and scuffing. American, C. 1875, rare.
The color of this piece is truly outstanding and even better
than the attached photos would indicate. I know of only a few
examples in this size and color with this example being as pretty
as any. If color is King, this bottle should be wearing a crown!
