The J. Herbin calligraphy set – Student writing set contains a penholder, a sheet of paper and a 10 ml bottle of violet ink, from the same French house.

The history of violet ink: since the Napoleon I era, French students wrote in purple ink, which was the cheapest ink. This particular ink was made with methyl violet, a solution known for its disinfectant properties. Until 1970, steel nib pens were mandatory writing instruments in French colleges and universities.

It also comes with a beautiful case.
