SOLD: Ten Pen Box – Avo Uvezian “The Dominant 13th”

The box pictured in this post is sold, but I have an identical box that can be fitted out in similar fashion.

Dominant 13th open upright

This box originated as the 2013 Limited Edition from Avo Uvezian Cigars.  Avo Uvezian, the owner, a celebrated jazz musician, commissions one limited edition each year – special cigars in a specially designed box.  The 2013 edition was entitled The Dominant 13th in reference to a particular musical chord frequently used in jazz.

For this edition, he wrote a short piece of music entitled “Delightful Days” using the dominant 13th chord.  The cigar box resembles a music book and inside the front cover is the music he wrote.  Opposite that originally were the cigars, plus a USB drive with a selection of his music and a video of him playing the piano.  A rare earth magnet provided positive closure.

I have rearranged the box to hold ten pens, each up to 8 inches long, and each in its own individual compartment.  The pen compartments are flocked with blue velvety material to match the color of the written music.  I’ve added two strands of elastic cord to secure each pen into its compartment even if the box/book is upright.

The USB drive contains his music and video.

On the front of the box, where there was once a rather unsightly paper label, I’ve added a simulated closure ribbon affixed with a fountain pen nib.  A gold silhouette of Avo Uvezian with a cigar decorates the cover.

The box/book measures 11 3/4 inches tall, 9 1/4 inches wide, and one inch thick.

The Dominant 13th box is quite rare, so this may very well be the only one I am able to offer repurposed as a pen box.  You won’t see another one like this!

The Dominant 13th Ten Pen Box, complete with music on the USB drive, is priced at $85 plus shipping. SOLD If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide a mailing cost quote.

I ship via USPS Priority Mail in the US and by USPS International First Class Package outside the US.

Avo Uvezian La Trompeta – Pen Storage for a Music Lover – SOLD

The Avo Uvezian La Trompeta is a well-made box featuring a musical motif on the lid and a capacity of ten pens.

La Trompeta is factory finished on the exterior in a light brown stain and the image of a trumpet player.  It has finger-jointed corners which are both attractive and sturdy.  I can remove or retain the tax stamp – your choice.

Inside, I will fit my “saddle” style pen compartments in your choice of available felt or suede cloth colors.  See the home page, about halfway down, for material color images.

Since La Trompeta does not come with a latch, I will add rare earth magnets embedded in the wood for secure closure.  The bottom of the box will be covered with 2mm brown foam for a non-slip, non-marring surface to protect your desk or table top.

La Trompeta is priced at $25 plus shipping SOLD.  If you are interested, please email me with your location so that I can provide a price quote.
