I got this T. Davids & Co. Large stoneware master ink. It has loads of finger prints from the potter. I attached an amazing and quite tragic must read history of T. Davids.

I wonder what keeps people like Thaddeus going after so many setbacks and we're talking major setbacks. It must be by "keeping your mind busy". I've
had people tell me this when I ask how they got to such an old age but they look younger than you'd expect. I picked up on the quote "Home, Sweet Home" referring to a postmortem existence.
Thanks for the info.

Nice stoneware master ink. Here's my related master ink:

Under David F. Davids the company [Thaddeus Davids & Co.] again prospered. He and his brother Edwin, along with George Snyder as president, (relationship unknown) took the company into the 20th century. With David’s death in 1905, and Edwin’s in 1907, other family members took over. In 1908 the company moved to Vandam Street. The Vandam factory made use of electricity and was completely up to date in the manufacturing process. Machines powered by electric motors did work previously done by hand.
At one point, there was a lawsuit over name infringement with C. I. Davids that was settled in favor the the Thaddeus Davids Company. C. I. Davids, a nephew of Thaddeus, according to records, continued his own company through the 1930s. Sometime during that period, it either merged or went out of business, as his obituary in 1945 listed him as president of Thaddeus Davids Ink Company. No ads or other information was found after this, which leaves us to assume the company either merged or went out of business in the next few years

No matter how many times you fail, if you don't quit your not a failure. He was left the ink business (at 13 years old!) Easy come, easy go... i guess.
