J. Herbin Wooden Box Writing & Calligraphy Set

J. Herbin Wooden Box Writing & Calligraphy Set

Sorry, this item has sold.

This beautiful calligraphy set comes in a vintage school writing box and includes one wooden nib holder, five steel nibs and a 30ml bottle of violet ink. The reusable wooden box has a lid which slides off to reveal a red velvet covered molded case which includes the ink, pen and nibs.

These fine tipped nibs are perfect for drawing and Spencerian/Copperplate and Modern Calligraphy styles.

This elegant writing & drawing pen & ink kit also includes:

• 1 - 1oz Violet Pensee Ink Bottle with built in Pen rest
• 5 Nibs - 1 Brause No. 65, 1 Brause Cito Fein, 1 Brause L'Ecolier No. B65, 1 Brause Hatat B10001, 1 Brause Steno B361 "Blue Pumpkin"
• 1 natural wood pen nib holder
• 1 wooden box

While these pen nibs and the holder are made of the very finest quality for professional artists, this set is also perfect for beginners.

Overall it's just plain beautiful! The box is sturdy and well made. Three out of the five nibs write well right out of the box. The other two, the ink won't flow but there are ways to make this happen. And the ink and bottle, just plain gorgeous. Love it! I would recommend this writing set.

The set is beautiful, looks 2-3x more expensive than it was, and came very quickly! Thank you!
