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 IMG_6554a.jpgIMG_6552a.jpgamount of debris that deposited, over the years, in the little inkwell. Another grain of sand would not fit in it.IMG_6551a.jpg
