ITEM 7641. "GROSS &
ROBONSON'S / AMERICAN / WRITING FLUID," aquamarine, cylindrical,
iron pontil scar, 7 1/16"H, applied mouth, about mint (shallow
1/8" base edge flake and a tiny bruise on the letter "M"
in "American"). American, C. 1850, extremely rare.
This impressively sized master ink is one of less than a handful
of known examples and it's a good one with bright, clean glass
and loads of crudity. Although not technically "perfect"
the noted condition issues are minor, especially when considering
the rarity of the bottle.
