Coolest Ink Bottles?

Hey Y'all,

 

Now, I know this is a very nebulous question, and that's why I'm asking it! I love hearing everyone's opinions and thoughts.

 

What Ink has the coolest looking bottle?

I think the Caran D'Ache ink bottles look really cool, but I also like the Pilot Iroshizuku bottles!

Hi Charles, et al,

 

My vote for "all-time" would probably go to the OLD Sheaffer bottles with the built-in filling reservoir; however, for current production... I really like Lamy's bottle... perhaps they are my "all-time" choice as well.

 

A built-in ink well with an integral roll of blotting paper... that's hard to beat! (I only wish their inks were as ingenious as their bottles ;)).

 

Be well and enjoy life. :)

Hi again, Charles,

 

I'm afraid I may have mis-interpreted your question... if we're going solely by looks and not design... I think my favorite is the diamond shaped and faceted Waterman bottles, (which aren't a bad design, either... ;) ).

I guess the winner would probably be the Akkerman bottles, not that I've been able to get one.

 

I'll have to live with my Lamy spinning top and MontBlanc shoe.

Akkerman1 bottle is very special, but not nice for me.

As nice bottle i considerthe Rubinato Deco' bottle.

Hi Fabri00,

 

If you're referring to the bottle pictured below... that's a new one to me... and yes, it's very attractive. :)

Levenger bottle. Very vintage feel to it.

I thought the Diamine pie shaped bottles from their 150 years celebration series were/are unique to the point of being cool.

Vintage: Carter's square bottles and larger master (cathedral looking) glass bottles.

 

Modern: Diamine's 80ml bottle, The striped, not dotted version, though I like the artwork on the bottle and box of the dotted version more.

FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper!

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

I agree with Fabri00, in what the Art Deco Rubinato's bottle is concerned.

 

Akkerman's bottles are very nice but they are the remake of a Waterman vintage one.

 

I quite like Rubinato's hexagonal one, and the japanese vase shapped ones.

Co-incidentally I recently bought a Rubinato hexagonal bottle of ink, but it's waiting for me in the US.

For 'coolness' I love the Graf von Faber-Castell Art Deco bottles and Parker Penman bottles :)

Not unique to Diamine, and were in fact used by L'Artisan Pastellier (and indeed others) long before Diamine's appropriation.

I ordered a visconti bottle one time because I thought it looked really cool.

The ink was black & black is just black to me so, I didn't care.

Huge dissapointment when I got it and found out it was PLASTIC :angry:

The glass Visconti bottles were much better.

They should look more like perfume bottles.

Those Visconti ink bottles always look much better in pictures than when you receive one. :( Because they are plastic they are quite unstable, so you need to put them in their plastic outer while you're filling your pen.

 

Visconti glass bottles look like this:
