Stoddard Cone Inkwell, 1840s, Pristine Example!




These come up for sale, but not many this nice. Here is a very typical 1840s Stoddard NH (Granite Glass Co) inkwell in a cone form. I have dug hundreds of shards of these, so I know quite a bite about them. These come on the plain pontil base, or with an “X” embossed on the base… this one is without the X. A nice warm golden amber color, crisp glass with good clarity, pontil base, and sheared top. A superb example for sure!!
