    I believe that's a form of a "igloo" ink bottle. Look really carefully along the base with a magnifying glass, as there may be very small marking. Excellent find!

    Yep that's an ink alright, and a great find! These don't show up too often. I'm not sure I've ever seen one in person.

    It is an inkwell. Probably from 1880's give or take.

    Dang Mine has no embossing...... But it looks exactly like one on E-Bay Morgans Patent July 16, 1867 Glass Igloo Ink Bottle. I was thinking ink bottle but didn't know what breed it was! Thanks guys great ID!
