National Stationery Week Day 1: Cartouche

It’s National Stationery Week!

Last year I found some Herbin Bouquet D’Antan which according to the website is

Bouquet d’antan: il s’agit des bouquets que l’on peut trouver chez des personnes agées. Cette couleur évoque la nostalgie du temps qui passe.

Or “It represents a bouquet that can be found at an elderly’s house.”

The cartridges I have are NOS as Herbin discontinued them a while back, so these have been sitting in a drawer, and losing water:

Seems to write OK, though, despite being more concentrated.

The pen is a Kaweco Dia2, which is very nice indeed. Great nibs that are cheap to replace, and take international cartridges so this is my main travelling pen.
