Dip Pen

Fittingly, we start this story with a preface. This is the predecessor to the fountain pen; the first "dip pen" I owned. This is also, I believe, the first image I ever captured of any pen. The first actual fountain pen I owned was from a countertop display that my father inherited from my grandfather. Sadly, that pen was lost to time.
