This blown three mold inkwell is in the GII-16 pattern with a plain, Ringed Type I base pattern. The glass color can be seen in some of the back-lit photos. While it may be properly called olive amber, it seems to me to have more of a yellow tone: such is the problem of people naming a color that is produced once in a century or so. The inkwell is well-made, the pattern robust and no injuries to the piece. The pontil is rough and noticeable. The dots on the bottom of the piece were there when I acquired the piece (perhaps the reference marks of a previous collector): perhaps someone looking at this piece right now!? Reference: McKearin. 1956. 12th printing. pages: 314, 261, 255, 207-08 and Plate 120, # 1 and 1a. This piece has a much more square top shoulder than the Plate 120 illustration, more like Plate 120 #2 without the GII-18 pattern on the top of the inkwell.

A mint example of a Keene blown three mold 1 pint decanter in pattern GIII-16 with a Type VII A rayed base. Color is olive green/olive yellow. The pattern is strong and there are some air bubbles in the glass. A very nice example of the blown three-mold technique and era of United States history.
