Awesome thank you for that info I’m going to try and make it! If I do I’ll definitely post pictures and videos. Actually, can you post videos on this site?

That's a beauty of an inkwell! I'd like to see photos of it cleaned up, never seen a fancy ink like that in such a bright colour before, most of them that I've seen have been clear.
I finally found it lol. Saddly it’s in a lot worse condition then I remember but it must have been that way cause I had it wrapped up right in bubble wrap. Oh well what are ya gonna do ‍♀️
you know what I find interesting... that little spot under where the ink would go it’s like a bubble or error in the bottle you can see it clearer in the picture with my finger in it. I suppose it would hold little tono value in this condition huh :/
Here's the one I mentioned. The inside retains the original pressed surface and is the only area not ground and polished, with the upper outside edge being ground only and probably is the area that accepted the cap. This thing sat on Daddy's desk for as far back as I can remember. No ink, just held pens, gem clips and stuff and I guess it made a good paperweight.
