Jacques Herbin 350th Anniversary Ink
Vert Atlantide (Green Atlantic)
Deep Rich Green Colour with Gold & Silver Shimmer
50ml Glass Bottle with Wax Herbin Seal
Limited Edition Shimmer Ink for Fountain Pens
The 350th Anniversary Inks collection celebrates the establishment of Herbin in Paris in 1670.
Each bottle contains 50ml of finest quality Herbin ink in colours only available in this collection, and include tiny flecks of gold and silver; whilst these give another dimension to the ink and to your writing, we recommend that you don't leave this ink unused in a pen for a prolonged period of time. The flecks do make it an ink that deserves extra care.
Vert Atlantide is a dark, intense green, illuminated with flecks of both gold and silver. It is reminiscent of the greenery of the fabled city of Atlantis, before it was lost to the deep. An ink aficionado, explorer and accomplished navigator, Jacques Herbin was said to be fascinated by the story of Atlantis and other maritime mysteries.
We recommend cleaning your pens between fills, just to make sure any residue is clear.
To get the most of the "shimmer" effect, shake the bottle well before use.
Jacques Herbin: A Brief History
The oldest name in ink production worldwide, J. Herbin was established in 1670 creating inks and sealing waxes for many famous French figures including King Louis XIV and Victor Hugo, author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
The origins of J.Herbin date back to 1670. At around this time the French sailor Jacques Herbin produced his first ink in his Paris workshop, "The Ink of Ships." This ink was an iron gall ink, required to be waterproof due to the weather and damp climate of ship's cabins.
The recipe may have been formulated for the ship's master on his trips back and forth to India; or when he settled down in Paris to first start producing his sealing wax. Today Jacques Herbin are one of the most highly regarded producers of fountain pen ink in the world.
