Final Bid
 

1. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 762), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, bluish aqua, 12-sided, 11"h, pontil scarred base, applied double collar mouth.

Perfect condition, highly whittled glass and amazingly no trace of wear. The gallon size Harrison's is the largest and most impressive looking of the Harrison's Columbian Inks, probably less than a dozen are thought to exist! John Lawrey Collection.

 
12 $ 3,000
 

2. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 761), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, bluish aqua, 12-sided, 9"h, pontil scarred base, applied double collar mouth.

A 1/4" by 1/8" chip is off the underside of the lip. Another is where the collar meets the neck, and some minor shoulder scratches. Nice glass whittle and the mentioned flaws take little away from its overall appearance. As rare as the gallon size is this half-gallon size is considerably rarer. We believe only five or six exist in collections today! John Lawrey Collection.

 
10 $ 1,500
 

3. “HARRISON’S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 760), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, aqua, 12-sided, 7 3/4”h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth, 97% original label in part reads: ‘Quart, Harrison’s Columbian Ink, Black, Manufactured by Appolos W. Harrison, No 10 South 7th Street, Philadelphia’.

An internal bubble located on the shoulder of the ‘Columbian’ panel has an opening in the outer glass. A fairly common Harrison’s, but the only one we’ve seem with a full original label! John Lawrey Collection.

 
8 $ 1,900
 

4. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 760), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, deep bluish aqua, 12-sided, 7 1/4"h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

A 4" long in-making pontil crack travels across the entire base. One of the deepest color quart size Harrison's we've seen, that actually approaches being teal in color. Yes, the in-making damage is substantial, but try and find one in this deep a color! John Lawrey Collection.

 
6 $ 160
 

5. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 538), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, aqua, 8-sided, 3 3/4"h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

Perfect condition. John Lawrey Collection.

 
12 $ 180
 

6. “HARRISON'S / COLUMBIAN / INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 535), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, aqua, 8-sided, 3"h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

Perfect condition, some glass whittle. John Lawrey Collection.

 
10 $ 150
 

7. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 538), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, pale apple green, 8-sided, 2 1/2"h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

Perfect condition. Not a lot of color, but definitely not aqua! John Lawrey Collection.

 
11 $ 190
 

8. “HARRISON’S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 592), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, bluish aqua, 8-sided, 1 3/4”h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

Excellent overall condition. John Lawrey Collection.

 
14 $ 170
 

9. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 538), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, light yellowish green (citron) color, 12-sided, 4 5/8"h, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

Perfect condition, full of tightly knit air bubbles, and in a very rare color that has no trace of aqua! We auctioned this ink a few years ago. At the time we thought it might be unique in this color and still believe it is! Ex. Bill Litle Collection. John Lawrey Collection.

 
13 $ 1,300
 

10. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK - PATENT”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 538), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, deep cobalt blue, 12-sided, 5"h by 2 1/2"w, open pontil, applied double collar mouth.

A clean 3/8" by 1/4" chip is off the side of the lip, otherwise in perfect condition. This is not an easy size to find even in the common aqua color. This example was in the collection of the late Charles April, and is thought to be the only known example in cobalt blue. The chip is opposite of the embossing and because of the density of color a professional repair would make it invisible! One of the rarest to all the Harrison's Columbian Inks! John Lawrey Collection.

 
18 $ 3,250
 

11. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 531), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, medium blue green, 8-sided, 2 1/8"h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

Pristine perfect condition and has some glass whittle. Common in aqua, but very rare in the pure deep green color! John Lawrey Collection.

 
11 $ 1,800
 

12. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 531), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, medium cobalt blue, 8-sided, 2"h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

A tiny flake is off a panel edge and a few light scratches. This example, (also from the Charles April collection) is possibly one of only two known in the cobalt blue color, and the minor mentioned flaws are non-offensive! John Lawrey Collection.

 
7 $ 2,100
 

13. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 529), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, light to medium cobalt blue, 8-sided, 1 5/8"h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

About perfect (some light inside content haze). Like others being offered here this is very different from the commonly seen aqua color, in fact it's one of only a very few found in cobalt blue! John Lawrey Collection.

 
3 $ 1,400
 

14. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 530), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, deep bluish aqua approaching teal color, 8-sided, 1 3/4"h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

Pristine perfect condition not a lot of color, but better than the normal aqua and it really sparkles! John Lawrey Collection.

 
8 $ 275
 

15. “HARRISON'S - COLUMBIAN - INK”, (Faulkner, pg. 69), (Covill, fig. 529), Pennsylvania, ca. 1840 - 1860, light blue green, 8-sided, 1 1/2"h, open pontil, inward rolled lip.

Perfect condition. Like all the smaller 8-sided Harrison's it is common in aqua, but rarely ever seen in this good green color! John Lawrey Collection.
