This neat looking Civil War vintage stoneware master ink is approximately 2.25 inches in diameter and stands about 5.5 inches high. It remains in excellent condition with no cracks or damage and retains all of its’ original glaze. This master ink is nicely maker marked GEORGE SKEY – WILNECOTE – TAMWORTH. George Skey established his stoneware works in Tamworth in 1860 and quickly became a world leader in the manufacture of all manner of stoneware containers. His stoneware beer bottles will offer Civil War collectors the most prevalent example of his product. Of special interest is the period label SUPERIOR BLACK INK PREPARED BY E. S. CURTIS, BOSTON. The Society of Inkwell Collectors advises that E. S. Curtis appears in historical directories for the years 1847-1848 and made powdered ink only. Its customers were given instructions for mixing and filling stoneware and glass containers. E. S. Curtis also supplied labels to be applied to their customers' bottles. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
