This is a charming and dainty dip pen of shimmering mother of pearl which is enhanced with a scrolling pattern with bands of horizontal engraving. The holder for the nib is in almost pristine gilt metal with a delicate engraved pattern and this holds a nib marked for A Norton & Son, New York. The condition is excellent apart from the tip of the nib – one half of the tip is slightly bent. This would make a lovely addition to a collection of decorative early dip pens for the pen and writing tool collector or a nice addition to an attractive writing box or slope. Total length 6 ins (15cm). Weight 4 grams.
