12. Mauritshuis Magenta - Akkerman fountain pen ink
The Akkerman "baby long neck" bottles have a capacity of approximately 60 ml. The faceted ink bottle is characterized by the long neck that contains a glass marble.
Akkerman fountain pen ink is suitable for any type of fountain pen and available in 31 sparkling colors. The ink colors have been given names in the Hague
What makes this bottle so unique By tilting the closed ink bottle, the neck fills with ink. Upright again, the marble will fall back and prevent the ink from flowing back. This creates a reservoir with ink above the marble from which the fountain pen can easily be filled, even when the pot is almost empty..
# 12. Mauritshuis Magenta
The originally built city palace for Johan Maurits on the Hofvijver in The Hague is owned by the Dutch state and functions as a museum. The pure color magenta can only be obtained by mixing equal amounts of red and blue and is described as a purplish red. Unlike the beautiful paintings in the Mauritshuis, the color magenta is rarely used by painters because the pure hue cannot be obtained by mixing paint.
