Some of the more unusual desk sets we come across weren't made by "The Big Four" (Parker, Sheaffer, Wahl-Everhsarp, Waterman) but by smaller, equally high quality writing instrument companies. Desk sets are always in demand, and we try to list them as soon as we find them, before we're tempted to keep them for ourselves!

Gregory Fount-o-Ink Desk Set Inkwell - Usually when we find these, the ink bottle is missing, or more commonly the thin celluloid cylinder that covers the bottle is broken or missing or there is no pen. It's hard to gather together a complete Fount-o-Ink Inkwell Set. This one is complete and also in excellent condition. Black ceramic base with cathedral embossed clear bottle. You fill the bottle with ink and it inverts into the base, along the lines of Esterbrook DipLess inkwells. Cover the ink bottle with the celluloid cover, this one is black topped with an edge of deep green and black marbled celluloid. The Fount-o-Ink Dip Pen is also included. Black with clear taper, large gold plated nib has a feed so it holds a lot of ink. Nib is marked Fount O Ink and it is a firm fine point, FP measures 6.5 inches long. Diameter of base is 4 inches. Bottle holds about 2 ounces of ink. Original Fount-O-Ink label on bottom of base. Very good condition all around and a very classic looking inkwell-desk set.

Crafter’s Wood Desk Set - Old stock in cellophane wrapper that I would date to the late 1950s - early 1960s. The red foil label on the top indicates this is #3552 Pen & Pencil Set in American Basswood. Ready for decoupage, carving, paint, stain, etc etc. Includes base with two swivel pen holders, two desk style Ballpoint pens and the Basswood base. Base measures 9.25 x 3.5 inches. Excellent condition, but I'll guess that the refills are probably dry.
