Jacques Herbin 1798 Anniversary Amethyste de l'Oural 50ml
The first in a stunning new set of inks from Herbin - the 1798 Inks Collection.
This collection will feature a range of beautiful colours enhanced by the inclusion of silver particles.
Amethyste de l'Oural - or Ural Amethyst - is a deep velvety purple, with the silver particles adding a satin finish for a lustrous effect. It suggests the color of royalty. This ancient gemstone from the gates of Asia was prized for its calming, meditative and lucid dreaming qualities.
1798 commemorates a significant year in J. Herbin's history. At this time, the French Revolution was ending, and the Herbin company, founded in 1670, was growing. In 1798 the company relocated to expand their production capabilities and the influence of their inks and sealing wax.
There are many similarities between the 1670 and 1798 collection. The two key differences are:
- The inclusion of silver shimmer instead of gold, and
- The 50ml glass ink bottle now has a slightly wider neck for ease of filling your pen.
