This fabulous 1970s desk set has a sleek modern aesthetic and sophistication worthy of any executive’s office. It consists of a dark wood cube base and separate solid black glass sphere pen holder which rests in a cork-lined crater on the base. The pen is made of the same wood as the base (looks like teak, perhaps?) and has a silver metal band and angled tip. The sphere can be turned and angled any way you like.

The ball point pen twists open and closed and writes with black ink. Both the pen and the base are signed “Hallmark.” Standing upright, the whole thing measures 8.75” tall. The wood base is 1.5” tall and 2” square.

This set is in excellent condition, with working pen and no chips or cracks in the glass. On very close inspection, I found a small, light surface scratch in the glass, about 1/4” long and invisible on normal viewing. The base is pristine, with absolutely no signs of wear, not even on the corners. The wood pen has naturally lighter and darker striations in the grain. These are not discolorations. The very top tip of the pen had some minor light scratches on it when I acquired it, but I applied a little Old English and they completely disappeared, like magic.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but for most items I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
