I just like looking at them. I don't know why, but I like them! Espicially the 30ml Pelikans. They look classy.

I, for one, will not be a facilitator of your new fetish.
The voice of this guitar of mine, at the awakening of the morning, wants to sing its joy;
I sing to your volcanoes, to your meadows and flowers, that are like mementos of the greatest of my loves;
If I am to die away from you, may they say I am sleeping, and bring me back home.

Don't know if I've already posted this one in another thread, but then, why not repeat?

I am pleased to hear that other people enjoy pen-porn and voyeurism. I believe that in my introduction I described myself as having a "prurient" interest-- not in a sexual way of course; only an obsessive attraction. I love seeing other people's expensive pens, inkwells; ink bottles and colors. I look at some of these photos with longing; some with regret-- I had a full set of Pelikan Inks in 1959 with those adorable caps that came in a wooden box that I wish I had a photographed, and a Sheaffer Skrip Turquoise with the built-in inkwell that my husband tossed into the recycling last year. I found in this network photos of the Sheaffer bottle, but still long for a photo of that beautiful set of Pelikan inks. Of course, if I had a photo of it, I would have lost that, too.

Wow, never knew ink came in so many types of bottles!
What is the purpose of having the lid down near the base and off to the side like some of these?

This is a great thread!

I beleive that there's a small inkwell type thing on that side, from the way the bottle lays. Like the MB ink bottles.

I too, love the look of ink bottles, as well as many inkwells! Unfortunately, I have none of my own, so I rely on the internet to see some :vbg:
I'm hoping to buy some bottles soon, when I have some money..... :blink:

Thank you Rena! Next time I empty another Noodler's bottle, I can make better pen holder with it with no cracks. And to Rookieboyllu, Rena has it right. Only the Fountain Pen Hospital has OMB.
