S620. Clear Dappen Dish
Dappen Dish / Dampen Dish.

These small wide mouthed glass containers with relatively heavy bases are ideal for holding gesso, ink or gouache.

Peter Thornton used a dampen dish to reconstitute prepared gesso in a gilding workshop that John attended. He put a piece of prepared gesso in one of these small shot glasses, added drops of water, and got the gesso to the correct consistency. He then applied the gesso to his quill or pen from the dappen dish.

Metal Lid: See item S802

I116. Old World Oak Gall Ink
An oak gall ink made with period recipes and materials including oak galls, iron salts, logwood dyes and acacia gum (Gum Arabic). Oak gall ink was used for many medieval manuscripts and is very popular today for Spencerian and Copperplate. For paper and vellum. Dries waterproof. 2 oz bottle.

This ink can be reconstituted using distilled water and letting it sit overnight. Then stir well and break up any solids.

Old World Ink Product Help:http://www.johnnealbooks.com/product_help#Oldworld

"It is really nice and darker than regular iron gall ink." - Nan DeLuca.

"This ink is teriffic! Smooth off the pen, it is jet black with hairlines as fine as any penman could want." - Bob Hurford

N73. Gillott 290 Nib
Small, delicate nib for very small script (x-heights under 1/16"). Requires very light touch to keep it from catching on the upstroke. Useful for retouching letters made with larger pens. The Gillott 290 is slightly finer than the Gillott 291. The 291 is probably more useful for script.
