An antique glass ink bottle that features its original glass stopper. The round blown glass body is clear and looks to hold about 2 oz. Used with a quill or calligraphy steel tip pen to hold the ink for writing those long letters by hand over a century ago. The glass stopper fits nicely in the top but does show some damage to the bottom which could easily be ground flat.
We were unable to determine the maker of this piece as there are no hallmarks. We would place this in the last decade of the 19th Century.
Measuring just over 2.5" high to top of stopper and the base is 1.25" diameter. If you are into calligraphy, this is a great original bottle to use for your ink.
