Rubber Stamp Inkpad with “Jeep” **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on ebay

This seems like an oddity. A rubber stamp inkpad with a Jeep logo added.  Maybe this should have a “Jeep” Stamp, too?

“Vintage Jeep Tampon Pour Timbres Caoutchouc Inkpad, With Tin
Tampon Pour Timbres Caoutchouc translates as “Buffer for rubber stamps,” pour encrer du reencrer votre tampon as “to ink your stamp of reencrer” and l’encre ideale dans le flacon parfait as “the ink bottle in the ideal perfect.”

J. Herbin was established in 1670, when Louis XIV, the Sun King, was 32 years old. M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax.

His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

J. Herbin is also the oldest name in ink production in the world. By 1700, the company was producing “l’Encre de la Tete Noire,” followed by “Perle des Encres,” (The Jewel of Inks) and “l’Encre des Vaisseaux” (The Ink of Ships).

J. Herbin made ink for Louis XIV, and a black ink for the sole use of Victor Hugo, author of the Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables. these formulas still reside in their company headquarters in Paris.”

In good condition with some wear {tattered edges} and soiling. Measures 4 1/2 by 3 inches. Weighs 3 ozs.”

    There’s something about “Jeep Tampon” that just strikes me wrong. I know in this case its translation means pad but still.
