Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

I found this beautiful Murano glass pen at a antique store.. even though it really isn’t antique. It even came with a little sealed bottle of ink, which I never used because it looked too cute. I rarely use these glass pens as they are so fragile and don’t write very well, and I don’t generally like to tinker with my pens so no sanding it down for me. I just keep it in my holder where it does its best to look pretty.
