This item is a SEAL PEN WIPE. It is painted metal and is in excellent condition with no paint issues. The wipe is boar bristle. Pen wipes were used to clean the nibs of dip pens which tended to get dry ink clumped on the point which had to be removed. The seal measures 5" long. We've never seen this version before.
