Ember Chalice Writing Set – Sterling Silver Inkwell with Garnets and Birch Dip Pen Clad in Silver Fittings


A solo project by my father Ivo Daskalov – A complete writing/calligraphy set from a beautiful combination of Karelian Birch wood and silver.


The Ember Chalice Writing Set is born out of weeks of meticulous work, design an assembly. It is a combination of objects that bring about an inspiring calm and provide the means for a truly creative and fulfilling writing experience.


The central piece is the symmetrical exquisite inkwell . With its wide silver base and finely worked cup, it houses the removable 10 ml glass well, that will secure the ink of your choice when writing. The silver lid is attached to the back of the base and a hinge enables its smooth opening.


The sterling silver openwork decorates the inkwell and the lid mechanism to its top, with a number of garnet gemstones set inside. Though not meant for travelling, as the cap is not tightly sealed, the wide base makes this inkwell a more than secure desk companion and quite protected from turning over.


The glass core is easily removed to be cleaned and refilled with the ink of your choice. The dimensions of the inkwell are 50x40x40 mm. The glass reservoir is 32 mm high, and 25 mm wide with a 20 mm opening.


The pen is worked from Karelian Birch wood. It’s an exotic but quite comfortable shape, making writing a true joy. The texture of the wood is such a beautiful piece of art from Nature itself and we’ve done our best not to interfere too much with it, other than the silver fittings in the front for weight and comfortable holding. The pen is polished to accentuate the texture but not in a mirror polish to nonetheless feel the warm connection with this extraordinary piece of wood. It is 14 cm in length without the removable nib and comes with its accompanying silver stand.


The whole set is housed in a wooden box for safekeeping and travelling.
