This special wooden antique dip pen hand-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! I think this pen is probably from the 1940's or a bit earlier, measures almost 8.0 inches in length and is in very good antique condition, with a bit of natural wear from age and use. It has a nice secure feeling in the hand, and if you're a calligrapher, you would love it as well.
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. We've sold a great deal of them, but there are still some in the shop, so please enjoy!
