Seeking Vintage MB Ink Bottle Info

Dear 'Inksters'":
Purchased this 'off the bay' (as a collectors item), and haven't been able to get any info about this ink bottle (plastic...kind of thinking early 50's), and am asking for your help in identification.

From what I have read they are bottles that were used in the 80's and in the 90's they switched back to glass. Couldn't really find out more about them

As above, those are from the eighties.

Nothing quite as convenient and nice as the modern glass "shoe" design bottles, IMO.

Now what you really want to find are the hard rubber traveling ink pots. :ouch1:

I recently contacted MB about my bottles, from 1994, to find out any details about them. I tossed the boxes out shortly after buying them back then. They have contacted me to ask where I was from, so if you contact them, [email protected], include where you live. It's worth a shot.

Awwwwwwww...I want one of those traveling ink pots (but probably won't be able to 'score' one of these
rare gems). :drool:

BTW, I did pick-up a vintage MB Inkwell 'off the bay'. :thumbsup:

I know what you mean, I'm hoping to stumble upon one at a garage sale for $3 :a8:

Good luck with that (but if you do find one...maybe they have two...one for you...one for me)!
