 GROUP OF FIVE CONE INKS. Here’s an instant collection of nicely colored cones. The olive example reads, “CARTER’S,” the amber, “SANFORD’S,” and the green example, “CARTER’S.” All are base embossed and in at least a grade 9 with the green Carter’s having some medium stain.  
$ 200
 GROUP OF FIVE CONE INKS. All are unembossed and the blue example is ABM. Here’s another nice grouping all in the 9+ grade with the exception of the olive example, which has stain. Generally a fine group and worthy of any cone ink collection.  
$ 120
 JOHANN HOFF MALT EXTRACT portable advertising inkwell. Here is an interesting piece we could not pass up. Only 3” high, it’s an inkwell that seals itself and one you can carry with you anywhere. When you push a button on the front, the top flips back to reveal a ground lip jar, which holds the ink. Very clever. No grade, but in good working order.  
$ 120
 UMBRELLA INK. Rolled lip and open pontil. Here is a good one for you Benicia collectors, this one really gleams in natural light.  
$ 60
 UMBRELLA INKWELL. A deep olive with loads of crudity and a nasty open pontil. This is an early one with everything you’re looking for. Grade 9+.  
$ 170
 UMBRELLA INKWELL. Rolled lip with pontil. Here’s another nice example, this one has some light interior haze but is generally a solid example. Grade 8.5.  
$ 150
 UMBRELLA INKWELL. Rolled lip and smooth base. Here’s the one collectors are looking for in a gorgeous grape puce coloration. Extremely whittled, it’d be hard to find a much better puce umbrella. Grade 9.8.  
$ 1,000
 PITKIN STYLE INKWELL. With pontil, almost 2” high. Here’s a rare form for this ink in a medium lime green. Although there is some light wear around the mouth, typical for these, it generally grades a solid 8. A tough ink to find.  
$ 600
 MASTER INK UNEMBOSSED. 7 ¼” with pontil and crudely applied top. Although this inkwell is not embossed, it is most likely a Colombian, which came with a paper label. You simply couldn’t ask for a better example. Covered in whittle with everything you’re looking for in a master ink.  
$ 450
 TRIO OF CARTER’S CATHEDRAL MASTER INKS. ABM Sizes range from 10, 8, and 6 ¼”. Here’s a terrific group of these popular machine made master inks. Although they are a newer bottle, it’s hard to resist the gorgeous blue color and shape. All grade 9.9.  
$ 375
                                                                                                                            * means Minimum Bid
