Hey hi! Thanks for taking interest. Could anyone help me out with ink stores in India? I would prefer the ones who give an option to order online. (Of course, I cannot travel all of India just for some ink bottles :/ ) I live in a small town & all that is available here is Camlin Blue & Red inks. If you are lucky, you may find Parker Quinky. I'm looking for inkwells up to INR 500 but cannot find stores. I have been swarming the internet since last week but to no good. I've been through pensavenvue.com, pensindia.com & of course snapdeal, flipkart, ebay and amazon. Here's what I've seen: Pelikan inks (32/65ml base colors RGBY) : INR 200-400 : OUT OF STOCK Diamine inks (30-60ml base colors RGY, blue available): INR 375-500: OUT OF STOCK Waterman inks: Same, out of stock. I mean, come on! All they've got of these brands are 850 & above! You name it! Lamy, Diamine, Waterman, J.herbin, etc. Can't find varied colors in any local brands & I'm not going to use camlin. I've tried to shop cross country but the shipping charges are more than the cost of product, obviously. :/ I currently use PILOT NAMIKI IROSHIZUKU - Ku-jaku Peacock Deep Turquoise Blue (50ml) & it cost me 1500 INR. I ordered it from engeika.com. If you buy the same thing from any of the Indian stores, you get it for 2500. Now, I can't afford 1500 for ever color and just for 50ml. So, I'm looking for varied colors & a bit of quality at the same time. So, any suggestion regarding stores / places to buy would be helpful. Also, please let me know if there are any Indian brands who make good inks. Thank you!
I recently purchased 3 inkwells through Ebay. All under $10 which surprised me except for the small one without a lid(which I am seeking if anyone knows the maker of it and may have a spare). I am just wondering if anyone knows anything about these. I will post information directly from the Ebay listings in quotation marks to hopefully give some clues. 1 - The one with missing lid - "It measures about 2 1/2" square and about 2 1/4' high. It glows a light green under a black light which I believe makes it from the early 1900's." 2 - Ornate Inkwell with crystal inkwell container. "Solid brass inkwell. Four footed swirled leaf and vine design with square glass ink reservoir. Measures 7" long x 5" wide x 2" tall. Glass reservoir measures 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" and has a 1 1/2" solid brass cap." 3 - The dark more bulky inkwell with ceramic insert. "EARLY METAL FLORAL DESIGN GERMAN INKWELL WITH CERAMIC INSERT SIGNED HP. GERMAN INKWELL SIGNED WITH AN "HP" ON BOTTOM AND THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS MADE, GERMANY. THERE IS A CRACK ON ONE OF THE LEGS, AND I TRIED TO SHOW IT AS WELL AS I COULD IN THE PHOTOS. THE CERAMIC INSERT IS ORIGINAL. IT IS 4" LONG - 3 1/4" WIDE AND 1 3/4" TALL. THERE IS A FLORAL DESIGN ON TOP AND AROUND INKWELL. "
