ITEM 7656. PITKIN-TYPE INKWELL, bright forest green, cylindrical, 36 ribs swirled to the right, pontil scar, 1 5/8"H x 2 1/2"D, sheared and tooled funnel-type mouth, an attic quality bottle with a nearly impossible to locate radiating potstone at the base edge. Blown at a New England Glass Works, 1790-1820.

Although it is not technically perfect, this truly superior Pitkin ink is as attractive an example as you are likely to find. The noted radiating stone is VERY, VERY difficult to find (you could own the piece for years and never know it was there) and this minor flaw is overshadowed the bottle's tight, well-defined ribbing, extreme crudity and bright "green" (not olive) glass. Best of all, it is priced to sell!!!
