ITEM 6290. PAPERWEIGHT INKWELL, deep aquamarine, generally cylindrical with the foot, stem and bowl tooled from a single gather, pontil scar, 5 1/16"H, flared mouth, about mint (tiny surface bruise on the outermost circumference of the bowl). Blown at a New York State Glass House, 1840-1860, scarce.

Blown from a relatively high grade of window glass, this interestingly formed paperweight ink was tooled and manipulated from a single gather. As with other inks of this type, it is likely that the piece was blown in Western New York State during the mid Nineteenth century.
