This special wooden antique dip pen carved from a tree branch has Washington, D.C. carved in the side and is a piece of real American folk art. It would be wonderful to own as a keepsake, especially if you have some connection to Washington. It would also make a fabulous gift for someone who lives in that area, or who is in government. My educated guess is that this pen is probably from the turn of the century, measures almost 8" in length and is in great antique condition. It has a nice secure feeling in the hand, and if you're a calligrapher, you would love it as well.
Naturally eco-friendly and green, antiques are the ultimate in helping the environment.
This special piece has been part of our personal 125 piece antique pen and pencil collection that appeared at the Cooper Hewitt Museum of Design's Reading and Writing Exhibit in 1980 in New York City. An article appeared in the New York Times, which you can Google. It is now time to share all of these valuable and memorable pieces with antique lovers all over the world. There are many more, so please enjoy!
