Prior to the creation of the modern day fountain pen and ball point pen, the common method of writing was to use a pen with a separate container of ink. Writing and penmanship were treated with a great deal of care and the art of letter writing, especially for women, was highly valued.
This image by an Anonymous artist was created circa 1900 to promote writing ink produced the Diletti Company which was based in Brisighella, Italy in the Northeast Province of Ravena. The image presents the elegantly dressed lady in a flattering setting sitting at her table and writing with the ink bottle prominently featured. The addition of the gold emblems and award symbols in the lower left area implies that this ink is of the finest quality.
