Ink Bottles

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.
