Palimpsest is puzzled as to the identity of the ink maker whose product filled this small hexagonal bottle. The letter M is inscribed on it. Mason ink?
According to British History Online, there has been a Mason & Mason ink manufacturer, founded ca. 1866, in south West Ham (London), Mason Str. and Anne Str. Mason & Mason are also present in the 1896 Trade Post Office Directory.
