Carter’s Ink Cube Stand

Carter's Ink baseCarter’s Ink was quite successful in their chosen field, but decided to branch into fountain pens as well for a while.  They produced some beautiful products, but were too late to the game and wisely retreated into their more successful area…ink.

This little Carter’s Ink Cube Stand was designed to hold a bottle their ink at the ready.  Their advertising said it fits any pen you like to use, and pictured quite a number of different pens fitted into it – with their ink, of course.

I’ve paired the Cube Stand with an Esterbrook desk pen – everyman’s desk set.
