This special wooden antique dip pen made 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...with all of the politicking going on these days! It would also make a fabulous gift! My educated guess is that this pen is probably from the turn of the century or a bit later, measures almost 8.0 inches in length and is in very good antique condition, with natural wear from age. It has a nice secure feeling in the hand, and if you're a calligrapher, you would love it as well.
Naturally eco-friendly and green, antiques are the ultimate in helping the environment.
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!
