Inkwells and Blotters: 4496 Wooden
No fountain pen collector's desk is complete without a classic rocker blotter. We have a fun little wooden model that fits any desk. Made of wood, it looks quite handsome, though it does have wear. Look closely at the photo and you'll see little chips around the edges. There also is a dark stain on the top plate of the blotter, but it blends in if you aren't looking closely. 8cm (L) X 5cm (W) X 7cm (H)
Inkwells and Blotters: 3734 Parker Superchrome
Vintage ink collectors will love this complete Parker Superchrome ink bottle set. Included is a 4-oz. bottle of blue ink (dried out) and the special tin that it rested in. Superchrome was a brilliant and beautiful ink that was far more vibrant than standard inks of the era. However, it was only intended for the Parker 51 with the "pli-glass" ink sacs. That which made it so vibrant was highly acidic and tore through normal ink sacs very quickly, ruining many old pens in the 1940s and '50s. It was discontinued due to its corrosive nature. We've seen a lot of Superchrome bottles over the year but this is one of the first we've seen to come complete with its tin. The tin shows a little rust and wear in places, but it isn't all that bad. EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES MIGHT APPLY DUE TO THE SIZE AND WEIGHT.
