This fabulous clear and white checked glass dip pen from the 1920's has its own wax seal and a clear ribbed nib, ready to dip into ink. This pen has a wonderful feel, and is in excellent antique condition. It measures 4.25 inches from top to bottom. Antique glass dip pens have been produced from the 1840's to the 1930's, at least, and were hand-made in France, England, the US, Italy and Japan. Some of the fabulous brightly-colored glass was produced at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company. The Corning Glass Works produced a souvenir glass pen for the New York World's Fair in 1939 and I have sold a few of these one-of-a-kind pieces here in the shop. Collect and enjoy this incredible antique object today.
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 more, so please enjoy!
