Product Description

Civil War era Pyramid/Umbrella inkwell. It is aqua colored and measures 2 1/2" x 2 3/4" high. There was a rapid increase in the consumption of ink during the Civil War, accompanied by the required bottles and inkwells to store the ink. The "umbrella" is the type most commonly found at Civil War period sites. There are examples in "The Civil War Collectors Encyclopedia", by Francis Lord and in the Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum (see pictures). 

This inkwell is in very nice condition, having an imperfect shape along with some stretch marks and air bubbles common to early glass. These inkwells go great with a display of a soldiers personal effects, (particularly nice alongside a letter).
