This is a gorgeous piece of very early stoneware, a little piece of colonial history to grace your desk with. These little ink bottles would have been once as common as milk bottles were,... also once were! However like a lot of early "disposables" they weren't treated with the reverence they now command, so few can be found in a totally pristine condition as this collectable little bottle.
From base to its jug lip its 5 inches high, 7 inches in circumference, and very heavy solid clay.
He bears his makers mark on the back side and the salt glazing and firing have created a wonderful pattern of shadow and shade from a dark chocolate rough texture to an light earth brown high glazed finish. The base of unglazed clay adds interest as to the clay thats been used.
A very attractive piece for your collection, or excellent condition for use as a colonial period prop.
