Rocker Blotters ~ Ink Blotter Paper


Antique Wooden Rocker BlotterJ Herbin Blotter Paper - 4.75 x 6.3 SheetsBack in the 1800's blotter paper, a soft, absorbent paper, was used to absorb excess ink left over from writing with a quill or fountain pen.

It wasn't until the late 1800's that Rocker blotters became popular here in the USA. Their popularity lasted until about the 1950's.
The Rocker Blotter is a writer's tool used to blot excess ink - basically designed so that you don't have to wait for the ink to dry.
Mini Wooden Rocker Blotter, Natural Finish Most are devised with a handle that unscrews allowing you to insert blotter paper onto the rocker. When you re-attach the handle, it tightens down the blotter paper. Rock the blotter back and forth over your wet writing while the blotter paper soaks up excess ink.
