Whether it's because of their compact size, their thickness, or their shapes, inkwells seem able to survive some ridiculously harsh conditions. Here are some I've found in dumps, excavations, berms, and even on the surface of empty lots. Stoneware, umbrella, cone, and reel styles here. Would love to dig a "turtle" (aka "igloo") style. Still searching.

RelicRacker , Well we'll have to talk some time. Just a portion of mine some dug some bought. But a lot came from my Mom and Date who would buy them and give them to me during Christmas and Birthdays over many years. These have been in my collection for 20 years. The 1900 Carter's, Sanford, etcetera. The majority of the inks are whittle inks probably European.DSC_0002.jpg DSC_0003.jpgDSC_0006.jpg
