J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Ink Caroube de Chypre 50ml
It is said J. Herbin was fond of dried carob pods as a healthy food during his voyages. As with other merchants, he traded or purchased them in Cyprus.
Carob trees have been cultivated in Mediterranean countries since ancient times. Carob pods were known for their therapeutic properties and were marketed throughout Europe as the "black gold of Cyprus."
This new anniversary ink is called "Caroube de Chypre" - Cyprus Carob - because of its deep brown colour. Caroube de Chypre is a dark brown ink with light red reflections and sparkling gold effect.
The 1670 line was originally launched to celebrate J. Herbin's 340th anniversary. Each 50ml bottle is hand dipped in sealing wax with a stamped “1670” seal on the front and individually packaged in a collector edition box. This rich deep dye ink will bring brightness and majesty to all your writing! It is a highly saturated ink with a gold sheen achieved by a fine pigment that is quite visible in the bottle and requires the bottle to be shaken well before filling your pen. Best results are achieved on good quality ink-resistant papers if you want to see the gold sparkle!
