Calligraphy Dip Pen Nib Tin Storage Box featuring Joseph Gillott's 604 EF Nibs
My photos are part of my description - please view them all and read the entire description prior to purchase. Props such as the original nib box and nibs are not included. This listing is for the decorative TIN BOX ONLY.
Joseph Gillott's 604 E.F. nibs have long been considered one of the top "Dream Points". Serious calligraphers and collectors usually have a stash of these coveted points in their collections, but very few have the original box they came in. I'm lucky enough to have one of the Asian Blue & White print boxes in near perfect condition, and now you can have a piece of this rare history, too!
Starting with a shiny silver, slide top tin nib storage box, I carefully replicated my original Gillott's box and adjusted the size to fit the tin. Both the top and the bottom of the original box are used to cover the top and bottom, respectively, of the tin. The images were then covered with a Matte Finish Sealer. The top portion of the tin faithfully displays the original box in it's decorative blue & white print and also has the yellow ribbon seal with the "Double Elastic", "Joseph Gillott's" and "604 E.F." within the band. I also matched the bottom of the tin with Gillott's famous "Caution" to the buyers to make sure they were getting genuine Gillott's product.
The tin's top slides open and closes securely with a snick. This tin can hold 50 of the Gillott's 604 EF nibs, but on average, approximately 35 'regular' nibs would fit easily. What a stylish way to store your nibs and easily take them with you on the road.
This tin is totally unique. It faithfully replicates the original 1890s box top and bottom. This would make a memorable gift for the calligrapher, draftsman or pen & ink artist in your life. Or, treat yourself to this lovely little historical nib storage.
NOTE: Gift sets of this decorative tin and One or Three Genuine Joseph Gillott's 604 EF Nib(s) are available in their own separate listings. Please select the Calligraphy & Pen Items section on my home page to view these listings.
