Good and early piece of Americana.A stone one of a kind ink with the American Shield on all 4 side,4 compartments for quill pens 1 larger hole or compartment for ink and a ring carved in around the ink opening to catch any drops of ink that drip while the quill pen if removed.Id date this anywhere between 1790-1840.Probably one if a kind.I've seen soap stone inks but never as deep.
