These two glass bottles are thought to have contained ink for fountain pens etc. The cross-section of the bottle on the left is circular, while the other is octagonal. They were found apparently dumped behind an old advertising hoarding. Publications bearing advertisements for other bottles in the same find spot date to the early 1920s.

Other bottles were found in the same spot (see Clear glass bottles and Glass phials).
