ITEM 7654. PITKIN-TYPE INK, brilliant yellow, 36 ribs, ribbed and swirled to the left, pontil scar, 1 11/16"H, tooled disc mouth, mint. Blown at a New England Glass Works, 1790-1820, extremely rare color. Ex. Watt White and Roger Long Collections.

Simply stated, this is finest color we have encountered in a Pitkin-type inkwell. Holly and I underbid this beauty in the Watt White Sale, purchased the piece from the Roger Long Sale, kept it for a number of years, sold it under duress and have just now reacquired the piece. It truly is the very best of its type.
