ITEM 3474. UMBRELLA INK, red amber, octagonal with embossed dots on two panels, pontil scar, 2 5/8"H x 2 1/2"D, sheared and tooled mouth, a mint bottle with a pinhead-sized spot of lip roughness. American, C. 1850, extremely rare mold.

This brightly colored umbrella ink is the only example we have encountered with the embossed "dots" on two of the two of the eight panels. Similar "dots" can be found on documented Stoddard flasks and thus it is our best guess that the piece is in fact Stoddard in origin.
