The Plane Tree Lane – Dip Pen From a Naturally Shaped Plane Tree Branch


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


The Plane Tree Lane Pen 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 pen is carved from a plane tree branch my father found on his way home one day . 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 and copper fitting where the nib is placed. 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 17 cm in length without the removable nib.


Accompanying the pen is a mahogany and plane tree stand that provides a beautiful resting place when it’s not used. It is again decorated with sterling silver and copper with plane tree motifs on both the stand and pen.


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