ITEM 5932. PITKIN-TYPE INKWELL,
deep emerald green, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the left,
pontil scar, 1 ¾"H, outwardly tooled disc mouth,
about mint (pinhead-sized lip edge flake of nominal depth). Blown
at an early New England Glass House, 1790-1820, very rare color.
Having bought, sold and collected New England Glass for more
than a decade I'd like to think that I have a pretty good grasp
on distinguishing good from better from best. With that in mind,
I am proud to offer this spectacular pitkin ink and market it
as THE BEST. The color and glass texture of the piece is simply
incredible and even more striking than my photos would indicate.
The mold impression could not be better, nor could the overall
form. Simply stated, you may find a pitkin ink for less money
but you will not find one any nicer. Buy it before we come to
our senses and stick it on our own shelf!
