Another ink bottle identification
« on: May 21, 2006, 07:06:26 PM »
Attached are pictures of an ink bottle which we think is probably Edinburgh Crystal but we may live to be corrected!

Had this for some time but not really tried to get an identification until now.

Lovely bottle which sits on what I can only describe as a pink foot which has a smooth ground pontil.

No identifying canes that we can see in the bottle 5.5 inches tall with the stopper and the stopper itself is 1.5 inches in diameter, the base of the bottle is 2.4 inches across with wear around the edge.
