This blue Jacques Herbin glass pen was made by hand in Italy. The island of Murano has been famous since the Renaissance for its high quality glass manufacturing and technique of coloring the glass.

This nib, formed of a set of twisted glass threads between which the ink climbs by capillarity, is very pleasant to use. Thanks to its elegance, it brings a note of vintage decoration on a desk. Glass dip pens are great for both fountain pen ink or calligraphy/dip pen ink!

This set offers a glass pen and a miniature glass ink bottle (15ml) in the color Bleu de Minuit.

We are excited and honored to be the exclusive US retailer for the Jacques Herbin premium collection.

Established in Paris in 1670, the Maison HERBIN initially specialized in the sealing wax, fine stationery and ink trade, and imported shellac from India. Since this founding their aim has been to "Give body and color to our thoughts." The adventure of one of the oldest ink makers in the world began over three hundred years ago but its products have expanded into a complete universe of inks, writing instruments, stationery, and other goods for amateurs and connoisseurs of the lettering arts.
