ITEM 3455. GEOMETRIC INKWELL, (McK# GII-2),
golden olive amber, pontil scar, 1 13/16"H x 2 1/4"D,
crudely applied disc mouth, mint. Coventry Glass Works, Coventry,
CT, 1820-1840, scarce.
Though we have bought and sold more than one hundred geometric
inks over the years, this is the very first example of a GII-2
that we have ever offered. The bottle is of course "not
that rare" BUT most every example is a bad example and this
is the first truly "perfect" example that I can remember
having the opportunity to buy. Better yet, the bottle is also
significantly lighter than most and also extremely well embossed.
You will not find a better example!
