Antique Bottles - Ink Bottles

Ink bottles are unique because of their long history, which provides collectors with a wider variety of designs and shapes than any other group of bottles. People who bought ink bottles considered the design of the bottle as well as the quality of the ink it contained. Ink was purchased in Inks bottles made of glass and typically sat on a desk. The ink was sometimes transferred and stored in Ink Wells.

The writer would dip the pen (or quill) into the bottle or ink well to put more ink on the pen. Because they set on a desk, ink bottles and especially ink wells were often decorative. Antique ink bottles and ink wells have been around ever since the dip pen and fountain pen has been used. Writing inks have been used for more than 2,500 years. As the fountain pen grew in popularity between 1885 and 1890, ink bottles became less decortative and soon became just another plain bottle.
