I got these 2 for $4! All the guy said was that they were OLD. They’re wooden advertising dip pens and I haven’t had much luck finding out when they’re from. I reckon maybe 1920s or 30s.
The captions are brilliant:
Only Fireproof Hotel In The City
Morgantown, W. VA.
Rich As Butter
Sweet As A Nut
At All Leading Grocers
I’ve never had a dip pen before so I had to take a little trip to an art shop to get some ink. I went with a basic black ink from Winsor & Newton, £3.19 from Atlantis Art.
Does anyone know anything more about these pens? Or when they’re from? I’d love to know.
Tomorrow’s post will be about some 1980s (ish, I think) NFL Pencils by Faber Castell.
