Oak Leaves Writing Set – Mahogany Inkwell and Dip Pen Clad in Silver Fittings


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


The Walnut 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 robust inkwell. In its polished mahogany base, 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 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, each panel having a cabochon of Mother-of-Pearl set inside. Though not meant for travelling, as the cap is not tightly sealed, the wide and heavy 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 40x45x40 mm. The glass reservoir is 32 mm high, and 25 mm wide with a 20 mm opening.


The pen and its stand are carved from the same piece of Mahogany wood as the inkwell base. 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. 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 14.5 cm in length without the removable nib and comes with its accompanying decorated stand.


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