Back in the summer of 2014 Freddy sent us a copy of  Pennant, a magazine from The Pen Collectors of America, Inc.
There was an advert or article about inkwells and ML thought that was a neat thing to have. As we visited antique stores we looked at inkwells. Most if not all were for dip pens. Not what she  had in mine. She found a perfume bottle she liked and re-purposed it for ink storage. I admit it did look nice.


Since then she has acquired a few more. She decided they looked so nice they should be on display. This led to a road trip to look for some sort of display shelf for the wall.
Well the best laid plans.... 


This is what she chose

And I admit it is nice to look at wth the fancy bottles and colored inks.

That is a brilliant idea, Phil and Mary Lou.  It's attractive and functional at the same time.

Neat idea. I dont have a picture of it right now I'll have to snap one tomorrow. But I took a glass bathroom shelf and put it up over my desk by my monitors and writing station and lined up all my bottles on it.

As requested so delivered ... even if it is a day or so late. I have a few other bottles of Noodlers and whatnot that arent very pretty put away in a drawer. I always wonder about removing them from their boxes but read ones that the sunlight could hurt the color, so I leave them boxed.

That is a beautiful setup!  What is the ink in the black box to the right that is in front of the Mont Blanc box?

Nice!  I should have shelving just for my inks but I really don't have the room. Sad

They are indeed.  2 bottles of the Pink, 3 bottles of JFK, 1 Albert Einstein Grey, 1 Twilight Blue, and 1 Ghandi Saffron.   I would send you some samples however I don't have anything to put them in.
