Over a hundred years ago, folks used pen and ink to write their letters. When they made a mistake, they used one of these ink erasers to actually scrape the mistake from the parchment.

The Ink Eraser is in good shape; the case isn't. It has been taped together at some point, but the tape has been removed. It still works to securely cap the eraser. The eraser has a touch of rust that could be polished out. The wooden handle is sturdy.
It is 5.75 inches long and 5/8 inch at the widest point. The blade is 1.25 inches long.

ca 1860

The wood dip pen was probably hand turned. The tip of the nib has broken off, but replacement nibs are available at art supply stores. (It's a C.H. Hunt Pen Co. Round Point #102.)
The holder is 5 7/8 inches long and .25 inches at its widest point.
