Sheaffer Skrip ink from the 1940’s - interesting observation



Recommended Posts

Apparently, Sheaffer ink from the 40’s was popular with cartoon makers. I was just watching an old episode of Tom & Jerry in which Jerry used a yellow label bottle of blue ink to pour on Tom that apparently was waterproof. One of my favorite cartoon episodes, but apparently they didn’t use Parker ink at Hanna Barbera cartoons.

 

Did Sheaffer use a yellow label like I think they did?

Hi..

I am not sure but Sheaffer Ink labels were a kind of brown in 1930-40's...yellow in 1950-60's I guess...

Regards...

Well according to fountainpenlove, Sheaffers Skrip labels and boxes were primarily yellow from 1939 to 1959 so your cartoon observation has merit and is probably correct.

The bottle in the cartoon looked just like the one on the far right above….blue ink.

I remember buying the yellow bottles of Sheaffer ink in the early 1960s, when I was in elementary school, seventh and eighth grades.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
