Handmade by Venetian master craftsmen, this deskpiece from Francesco Rubinato has a base made of wood, a miniature statue of Atlas carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders made of solid metal which doubles up as a quill pen holder. The natural goose quill in white has a metal handle and a stainless steel dip pen nib. The red ink bottle complements the purity of the white quill. Francesco Rubinato of Italy has been creating curated pieces of fine art for over 60 years now. Each piece is accompanied by a seal and certificate of authenticity by Rubinato, Italy. Note that the ink supplied with this quill is specifically formulated for use in a dip pen and should not be used in a regular fountain pen.
