Inkwell

1814-1850


This is an inkwell made of hand-blown glass. An inkwell is a small container holding writing ink into which a pen or feathered quill could be dipped. There is a pontil mark on the bottom, which is a result of the glass blowing procedure. This glass inkwell features a Keene geometric pattern, named after the Keene glass produced by the Marlboro Street factory at Keene, New Hampshire.
