    My dad found this years ago while hunting he told me where he picked it up and it’s lead me to what I think is a old homestead site, I happen to be at my parents this weekend and so I took some pictures of it
    Still have very little evidence that is dateable I did recently find a Holmes booth and Hayden’s lamp mechanism I suspect this falls in that same 1853-1901 range but any info would be great

    Looks like maybe a finger print in the glaze
    Also found rural Kansas pasture so highly doubt it’s something like a high school pottery project

    It is a salt glazed stoneware cone inkwell. My guess is early 1900's or so. Very nice!

    Sometimes called a bee hive ink well.
    These bottles where created to be thrown away after the ink had been used.
    Great save !!

    Your inkwell is likely British and dates to the 1870s - 80s, the one your Dad found is in amazing condition.
    Most of the examples I find have been beaten to death by the plows.

    Here are a couple I found last year,

    Looks like you're onto a dump site.
    I'd definitely consider heading back with a sifting screen.

    Dump vs house That is the debate between me and another guy who grew up in the area and has 35 years on me. I intentionally dug on a part of the site that probably WAS a dump but I think it’s a complete site there appears to be a filled in well, the area is maybe 60x20 yards that seems huge for an 1800’s dump, it’s on a hill next to a creek, most dump sites around here are in creeks, and there seems to be an organization to the site. Around one tree I find household items, silverware, lamp parts, decorative pins, door hardware, square nails. To the west side I find lots of hors tack and horse shoes and farming equipment, I think it’s a homestead but he’s adamant it was just a dump

    ... I’m hoping I can find enough pieces to rebuild a jug or two. It’s like doing a puzzle except, the pieces are buried and there’s no guarantee they are all there
