Another Box Just for Me – I ran out of storage space! I HAD MORE OF THESE, BUT THEY ARE ALL GONE NOW

Marbled El Primer Mundo closedThis box began life as an El Primer Mundo cigar box.  I’ve marbled it with black, teal, gold, and copper (sometimes twice) and fitted the interior for pen storage.

The inside of the lid bears an original artwork by me featuring vintage handwriting,  postcards, and other interesting handwritten items.Marbled El Primer Mundo open with pens

If you want a little more “steampunk” motif, I have some alternate artwork that I can provde.

Marbled El Primer Mundo pens detailThe pens are contained in individual compartments lined in a deep rusty red shade of suede cloth, and the pens pictured are my family pens, plus the first vintage pens I collected.  In the center are a Parker 51 Special – my father’s – and a Sheaffer TM Tuckaway – my mother’s – with matching pencil.  Flanking those on the right is a Laughlin eyedropper filling pen that belonged to one of my paternal grandparents, and on the left is my mother’s father’s Hudson pen.  Further to the right are a Parker 51 and a Ford’s pen and pencil set, and to the left of the Hudson are a Sheaffer slim Targa that I’ve owned for many years and a Sheaffer “fat” Valiant Touchdown.

The bottom of the box is covered with a 2mm thick foam pad to provide a non-skid surface that also protects a desk or tabletop against scratching.

The box measures about 10″ by 7″ by just 1″ thick and makes a nice statement in my office.
