Dip Pen Display Stand

I love dip pens, and have quite a few, but could never find a way to display them until now. I just created this delicate stand and it does the job perfectly!

Elegant solution for the pens. I’m intrigued by the blue and green ones. I’m assuming from the photos that they are glass tipped? Are they hollow like a traditional metal nib?

The glass pens are actually ribbed, not hollow. And each one is made completely out of glass. The pen is dipped into the ink and the ribbing is such that as you write, the ink is drawn down to the tip. I love them!

Thanks! Just collected the pens over there years at antique stores, and if course eBay. :-):smiley:

Also looks like it would be a great Poor Man’s wand holder.
For the Potter fans.

@kathy Very nice! I have a plan to make those too. My wife and I make oblique and straight pen holders, so we thought that they would be a good accessory. Would love to get your input on our pens.

This is lovely - the biggest problem is how to pick which one to use.
