Ink Bottles

Ink bottles, in different colours, with recesses in the shoulders for pens to rest, and with burst-off lips. The two in the front row still retained some of the sealing wax, used to secure the cork, around the lip. The broken green one, front left, is embossed ‘Hollidge’ on the shoulder. Discarded in 1908 after the death of Mary Everett.

    Hi
    I’ve found an ink bottle, square, ribbed on three sides exactly like the one in your picture of march 31 2015. It’s the one on the top right. It has the initials GJS on the bottom, could be JGS. Can you tell me some more about it please?
    thanks in advance
    kindest
