Small, 5" long, red, plastic dip pen holder with a vintage Gladiator No. 421, Nickeloid, extra fine dip nib. The holders are modern plastic and have injection molding seam lines and surface imperfections. The vintage dip pen nib has flex and is appropriate for Spencerian-style writing. The writing example shown was done with one of these nibs.
Note: Vintage dip pen nibs often have a protective coating that needs to be washed off before using or they won't write properly.
