Handmade for us by American glass artisan Brad Shute, this beautiful glass pen holder is the perfect desk accessory to hold and elegantly display a special fountain pen. It has a swirling pattern of pearlescent white on a clear base. This color will be a single limited production run.
Because they are made freehand using no molds, there will be slight variations in size and shape, as well as the variation in colors. Our photographs are representative to what you'll receive. On average, the penholders are roughly 3 - 3.5" tall, with a base about 3 - 3.5" in diameter. The average weight is roughly 8 ounces. Brad's taken care to ensure the 5/8" opening diameter is consistent, as it's wide enough to accommodate the majority of your pens.
We recommend storing your fountain pens nib up, though some pens may also fit nib down if the diameter with the clip is narrow enough to fit. It fits nearly every fountain pen in Brian's personal collection, including large flagship pens such as the Pelikan M1000, Mont Blanc 149, and the Sailor King of Pens.
The majority of the glass used for these penholders is glass that Brad has specially formulated, then mixed and melted himself from sand, soda ash, lime, and various other glassmaking chemicals. Each one is unique!
We are unable to accommodate special requests for specific color variations. Pens shown in pictures are not included.
