Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

Akkerman Voorhout Violet

Collecting ink bottles is starting to be one of my things.. and I am very happy to get my hands on one of these beautiful Akkerman ink bottles. They remind me of unpopped Ramune bottles. These are quite difficult to get as there are no U.S. retailers, currently it is only sold in Netherlands and thus shipping to the States is very expensive due to the fragility and size of the bottle. However, there are group buys being conducted every once in a while on FPN and even then the price for one of these can go up to $38 a bottle. However, the price isn’t too bad considering these bottles are huge.. it holds about 150ml of ink.

My bottle contains Voorhout Violet and it writes pretty well. If there is another chance, I would love to get a friend for this one too.
