    Creek Bottom find, Judd Ink Well & how much Debris will Fit in a 1"x1" Hole.

    Walking to a digging site, I spotted this glass object flush in the creek bottom. Dug the little chuck of glass out, with a sharp chisel point, where it had laid for 100 or more years. Realizing, it is a inkwell and not a ink bottle, I checked the base, and discovered it is marked JUDD. Amazingly, this is my first dug inkwell. Afterward, from digging a good soda bottle pit, I brought it home , and dropped it in the soaker. The next day , took a old flexible grapefruit knife , and carefully dug the rock and sand impacted in the little one inch wide by one inch deep well , dumping it in a milk glass pot lid. Really amazed at the Click image for larger version.

    amount of debris that deposited, over the years, in the little inkwell. Another grain of sand would not fit in it.Click image for larger version.
