Vintage Copper Brass Feather & Horse Calligraphy Dip Pen - Horseman
So, here is the story. In 2006 an F3 tornado hit my home & studio, destroying both, along with numerous other homes in our area. This tornado took the lives of 26 people in our community, and to say the aftermath was horrific is an understatement. What could be gathered up from the rubble, was, and put into storage. I have not looked at any of what survived until recently, and this pen is from some of my inventory during that time. I do not remember anything much about this pen, other than it IS a hand turned pen. I wish I could remember more. All I do know is that it is at least 15 years old. Not quite vintage.
It is turned copper or brass (not sure which) dip pen, with a horse head over the top of the feather quill. It does show the typical age discoloration for this material, and it does appear to have had something attached at the base which has been removed. No bends or breaks. Possible advertising item. I don't know, I just liked it so I purchased it for my shop.
SIZE: 8 1/4 inches.
