This moist cake of Vermilion ink comes inside of a beautifully decorated China cup; complete with a lid that features the image of a traditional Chinese dragon. The ink is used for traditional Chinese soap stone stamps. It can also be used with other stamps (rubber or metal). Simply beautiful in and of itself! The China cup measures 2-1/4 inches in diameter and the usable ink pad inside measures approximately 1-3/4 inches in diameter.
