Here for sale is a fantastic vintage box of fountain pen dip nibs. Made by C. Brandauer & Co Ltd who were based in Birmingham, England and were making pen nibs from the 1800s. The nibs are the 'Scribbler Pen No 147' design and are embossed with the company name individually. The nibs are unused and the box is very much as found.  This lovely original box contains lots of nibs and is a great item to collect and use.


Box is very worn and rubbed, it is ripped along joins. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


box - 8 cm width, 5 cm depth, 1.5 cm height
