Dug this weird bottle? this morning. from a late 1800s to 1930s dump It has no markings at all. Anysuggestions as to what it could have been used for? 20190414_103759.jpg20190414_103852.jpg20190414_103901.jpg20190414_103938.jpg20190414_103932.jpg

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.
