This item is a lovely HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST BOXER DIP PEN. This is an interesting piece. The pen is actually a piece of a tree branch that has had a collar for the nib attached at the bottom and the boxer carving at the top has been applied and the joint is covered by the cute little collar with bell attached. The boxer carving is excellent with great color and patina plus excellent detail including glass eyes. Overall, the pen measures 8 1/2' long.
