Jacques Herbin’s 1670 Collection celebrates the rich life and adventures of Herbin, an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.
Jacques Herbin is pleased to announce the launch of the new 1670 ink, Fuchsia de Magellan. This trendy shade, combining softness and warmth, has a cloud of golden glitter that gives this ink radiance and intensity. The Magellanica fuchsia was discovered in South America. It is a tribute to the Portuguese explorer Fernando de Magellan, who discovered the most important natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in southern Chile and was named after him. Glass bottle of ink of 50 ml with gold flecks that don’t clog the fountain pens.
The 50ml bottle is sealed with the famous J. Herbin supple wax.
J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. M. Herbin created “The Jewel of Inks” in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.
