I am fond of these flared wide-mouth jars from the early 1800s. The center jar is German, I believe. The left and right jars are French. The center jar is too light yellowish-green to be considered "black glass" IMO. The other two are definitely black glass.

Yes, I would, Roy. I would readily add your ink to my collection of black glass.

This is one I found at an old steamboat landing. I think of it as olive-amber, but by my own definition (above), I can call this "black glass."

Thanks Harry,

I would love your thoughts on these two little bottles. The tallest one on the right is less than 4 and 3/4 inchs high. I've never thought of either as black glass but now you have me wondering.

Roy
