ITEM 6688. MASTER INK BOTTLE, purple, 12 sided, early smooth base, 4 ½"H, flared mouth, mint. New England, probably blown at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Works, Sandwich, MA, C. 1870, extremely rare.

Not puce, not amethyst but truly PURPLE, this extraordinary little bottle is truly a joy to behold. I know of less than a handful of these bottles, which appear to me to have been blown in the same mold used for production of the Sandwich made dentrifice jars. The only other example that has come to light in recent years was the Mebane example which was purchased at the Gardner Sale in 1975.
