Circa 1875 Umbrella Ink

This 8-sided umbrella ink has an unusual top. It's a standard ring but has an upraised shear band. That shear band has roughness and a 1/4" crack from it. Must has been for some type of special stopper. Clear umbrella inks are uncommon.

Height:  2 3/4"

Condition: perfect structurally except for the weird lip and associated 1/4" crack. Some patchy light stain and trace wear otherwise.
