WELCOME and thanks for stopping by. Here up for bids is this little beauty of an Umbrella ink in a very attractive sea foam green color with just a touch of blue in the mix. I'm not saying this one came from there, but only that I've seen bottles of similar color from the Lockport Glass Works. Well, there's not too much to tell with this one, but I'll try to sum it up as best as I can. Very crude glass with LOTS of whittle, some very nice bubbles, multiple swirl (not ground) lines passing through it, NO damage, a little base wear with a cool striation of slightly darker glass there; a sharp, jagged pontil scar,and perhaps a very,VERY light scratch or two. All original condition and n ever cleaned/tumbled. Approx. 2 3/8 inches high and also please note that the ink's base is somewhat oblong in shape. The distance across the base in pic #11 is 2 1/8 in. while in the last photo, the distance is 2 5/16 inches. I should also mention that on one of the panels (the one with two obvious bubbles on it) nearer the base, there's a very small piece of glass that became fused to the ink and you can feel just a small bit of roughness there. But please don't try to pick it away. I don't think that would be very wise. Just a great early pontilled umbrella in outstanding, ALL ORIGINAL condition that the winning bidder should be very pleased with. ... read more
