Herbin started producing ink in 1670, making ink for King Louis XIV, the Sun King (or Le Roi Soleil) and other important French figures such as Victor Hugo (author of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Les Miserables").
This special anniversary set contains the original 5 colours of Les Perles des Encres: Perle Noire, Bleu Myosotis, Rouge Caroubier, Vert Reseda and Violette Pensee, and commemorates 350 years of Herbin.
Each glass bottle contains 10ml of ink and features a vintage label and a wax-covered cap.
Herbin inks have long been a favourite of many fountain pen connoisseurs. Besides their wide range of colours, these inks are especially popular due to the use of entirely natural dyes. The use of these dyes mean that these inks are of a neutral pH (non-acidic), fast-drying and lightfast. Suitable for fountain pens, dip pens and brushes
