Function, Development, Construction and Fabrication

Ink Bottles-

At the moment I have not written much on ink bottles.  Some of them are quite special.  For now, I paste some photographs of those bottles, which asked to be mentioned.

I must admit, three years later, I almost have forgotten about this page.  There are interesting features of these bottles to write about; however, writing about fountain pens has kept me busy.  One day…


Since you have arrived here, allow me to suggest to return to the intro page and choose one of the topics. Surely, you will find something you are interested in finding out more about.

One thought on “Ink Bottles-

  1. At age 76 I have remained a dyslexic left handed sloppy, unreadable writer in cursive and poorly formed letterer in block. Without keyboards (typewriters early on) I would be illiterate instead of a commercial writer. SO after 13 years of retirement with no money — I have decided to take up calligraphy to prove both self discipline and focus with a learned skill.

    During the past six weeks of research, You-Tube overload, attending art stores who knew less than I, I have made some decisions and small purchases and discovered how little I know.

    Then, I came across your site — and owe you a strong debt of gratitude. I have had some ideas of melding dip pens and fountain pens but could not, until now, find reasonable clear answers to my questions about materials, molding, nibs and feed fits. You have done the hard work of compiling the data I need to go forward — and maybe even afford to do something about my building some real tools to go forward to actually producing some work on paper. The next few days will be devoted to learning the naterial you provide and buying, modifying and fitting the pieces I will need to pen some letters.

    Obviously I am niot a guy who can go out and buy a good pen or three — and will have to “Frankenpen” some of my ideas together with your information.

    SO, consider this my affordable note of thanks to you for sharing your knowledge in the spirit of the way the net was originally founded as an open community to spread knowledge to those who may use it for improvement of the world around them.
