I found this nice eight-sided ink bottle in a thrift store, and subsequently found a great website on typing and dating bottles, but there was only one brief reference to the ink bottles stamped with "JAPAN" on the bottoms. It has a seam that is barely noticeable that runs up a ridge all the way to the neck and lip on both sides. It also has a number "1" on the bottom. There are many many bubbles, and no other machine marks. The glass has a lot of interesting striations and variations in the glass body.
I was only able to make a wild guess of dating it in the 1930s (the bubbles and the seam). Did I get the right decade?
