A 19th century Inkwell, ink bottle and pen. In the 19th century students would learn to write in various ways. Some very young children were taught to write with their fingers in a box of sand. They would then progress to a slate, on which they would write with a slate pencil which could then be rubbed out and rewritten upon. They would then progress to the dip pen and inkwell as seen above, writing on paper, first on a copy book to learn how to write text correctly then on plain paper.
