It is calligraphy/ dip pen ink. Authentic Models is a Dutch company that makes all sorts of "olde worlde" style gifts. Sold in various online stores, in UK and elsewhere. I shouldn't think they actually manufacture the inks themselves. Haven't tried it myself.

I found their website. This is the writing page (no affiliation):

http://authenticmode...ting-collection

The one piece of information I could not find anywhere on the net is where the ink and other objects are made, even though they are selling to retailers and one might expect that basic information to be included. i always want to know the country of manufacture.

Dip pen ink is not something I would want to put in a fountain pen!

I've used their glass pens which are disappointing.  I've tried the smaller bottles of ink.  Overall, I was unimpressed with the quality.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
