I thought this was super cute, and could not resist the purchase. The Visconti is there for size comparison only. Yes, that is a tiny ink pot for dipping and there was a very tiny plastic dropper to put ink into it for dipping the pen ( my cats, however, misinterpreted its use as a chew toy so it has been destroyed). The website, with which I have no affiliation, is www.yougneek.com. So many tiny little things, it's fun to look through.
