Give your bed-and-breakfast, church or small business a classic vibe with a dip pen to sign the register. We aren't sure why the Esterbrook 444 desk well set-up was called "dip-less," when it was still a dip pen. However, the dip/holder is an inkwell that keeps the pen wet and ready to fill out a check or other brief writing experience. The glass base is cleaned and has a cork bottom. The black, hard-rubber plate/cover has shallow but obvious wear from past cleanings and such. The photo doesn't show all the mini scratches, but there are lots when you look close. The pen is dip only, and it comes complete with an upgraded 9668 nib that writes a smooth fine-medium line. Complete with original box and instructions!
