Manufacturer: American antique

This screw top traveling ink should not be confused with the bottle type used with ready to use liquid ink but was intended for the carrying of ink powder generally in travel. The small amount of powder or pellets held by this screw top container would make as much as a quart of writing ink when dissolved in water. As such, dissolved and mixed as needed, a little at a time, the little traveling ink could supply sufficient writing ink to last the average traveler or soldier for an indefinite period. This example was turned from walnut and remains in excellent original condition with no cracks of flaws. A rich natural patina and evidence of period use is testimony of age and originality.
