Vintage English Pottery
Trend in home design is to mix the new and old in pottery collections which are making the vintage pieces harder to find. Grab this Vintage English Pottery ink bottle to start or add to your collection while you can. We love to use groups of vintage pottery to add a rustic farmhouse feeling in kitchens, living rooms or offices for the nostalgia as well as color and texture (gorgeous). The glazes were (and still are) created using wood ash to make the deep rich colors that we all adore.
Dating to the 1800s this ink bottle features a pour spout, honey brown finish and stamped writing on the lower edge of the bottle that says the following;
Viteous Stone Bottles, J Bourne & Sons, Patenees, Denby Pottery, Near Derby, P & J Arnold, London
Two small chips on back.
2 5/8” X 2 5/8” X 6”
From Collector’s Weekly – “It would be natural to assume that ink bottles date to the beginning of glassblowing and the written word, but prior to the 18th century, the most common form of ink was a cake or powder, which the writer would mix with water. It was only in the late 1700s that liquid ink in wide-bottomed bottles was widely available for sale.”
