Hi Group! The little lady brought me home a new ink for the collection today... This ice cube size bottle is early... The base is funky, quilted like... it sits on 5 points. the outside center and the middle, the base looks much like a maltese cross...The embossing runs across like a X and reads Carbo-Nine Ink Co. N.Y. Anyone have any input? Thnx Taz

Taz. if I didn't know better I'd say you took a common square utility, cut it off and performed some equisite 'surgery' on it! lol This is a new one for me, I'm not that educated regarding inks, but that looks like a duzey!

I looks kinda like a tilt ink but the balance is off, maybe it needs ink in it lol It is built like a punching bag it don't want to fall over!

Taz, that's a new one to me, and I've collected inks for years!
