Quill Pen & Ink Set

From the 6th to the 19th century, quill pens were the principal writing instrument.  Many calligraphers still consider a quill pen the best writing instruments because of the quill's ability to produce a fine line with non of the harsh qualities of a steel nib.  The U.S. Supreme Court still uses 1200 quills a year, upholding a tradition it began in 1801.

Set contains 2 quills, ink powder and hand blown glass ink bottle.
