Photo of the Day (8.24.11)

Today's photo: An ink bottle we found buried in the backyard over the weekend.  We've found many things in the backyard such as peanut butter jars, plastic bread bags, and shards of broken pottery, but this was a little more interesting.  This bottle has a sort of bubble in it that is a reservoir, the perfect size for the tip of your ink pen.  You would just invert the bottle and the reservoir would fill with ink for you to use.  The patent number is printed on the bottom, so I was able to look it up, and it was patented in 1930.  Pretty cool for old junk in our backyard.
