A fabulous piece of functional vintage, this pen holder will take most standard size writing instruments and can tilt 360 degrees making it especially practical. The iconic anchor is beautifully pitted, the patina giving it a nostalgic feeling of past letters once penned.

This design has been re-produced since, but the quality is nowhere near the same, the proof being in the weight of the item.

We think this stylish piece of desk furniture would make a lovely gift, particularly for those who are nautically inclined or who appreciate the romance of the mighty deep.
