Pen box repair / ink removal


Recommended Posts


Hi FPN repair community,


I am looking for a box restorer in the UK/person handy removing ink. I have recently bought my first vintage pen and it  unfortunately leaked in transit staining the inside of the box (satin lined, leather box). The seller told me it is washable blue and I have removed a lot of the ink with cold water, tissue paper, cotton wool and a lot of blotting, however a light blue stain remains that doesn't seem to lighten with the above method. I am sure it is not the fanciest pen ever sold but it upsets me that it lasted ~100 years in a fairly pristine condition and now looks like this. If anyone knows someone who is an expert in removing these kinds of stains I would really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance,
