Newell Robbins "Ones The This Bottle" (and Etched it Himself)

Regular price $75.00

Near impossible to photograph well, but I love this thing--a glass ink bottle, its surface crudely etched (scratched into) by a young Newell Robbins. His name appears in large letters on both sides, followed on one side with "ones the this bottle" underneath--translation: "owns" this bottle, I believe. The other side reads "born October 12" with a bit more following that appears to have been deliberately scratched out.  I filled it with water to make it a bit easier to read in photos and tried shooting against black, too; it is clearer in person, but might be clearer yet filled with black ink! 

 3" t x 3" d and in good condition. No stopper.
