These gorgeous ink bottles would look good on any desk. They are the “1670” anniversary inks from J. Herbin, produced to celebrate their 340 year anniversary.
J.Herbin was established in 1670 in Paris. Ink production started during the First French Empire, with the ink being used by Napoleon Bonaparte and then by his son the King of Rome. During the 19th century Herbin participated in many exhibitions and in 1823 he was awarded in London for the exceptional quality of his inks and waxes.
Today Herbin inks are still widely used and internationally renowned and we are proud to stock them at FitzgeraldTaylor.
Beautifully presented there are two colours in the “1670” collection.
Rouge Hermatite – a dark red with an earthy tone. A reminder of the historic colour of the Herbin logo and sealing wax used by members of the royal court. This rich deep dye ink will bring brightness and majesty to your writing!
Bleu ocean – a deep blue that recalls the sea voyages of J. Herbin when he was travelling in the far east and discovered the famous gum which allowed him to manufacture wax.
We have them available in store now.
