📌 Expertise needed: Rare antique European dip pen

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone 😊, greetings from the Netherlands! Happy to be here in the Fountain Pen Network 😁


I need your expertise. I've acquired this striking, antique personalized dip pen made of ivory from a reputable auction house. Aside from certifying the authenticity and legality of the item, they don't have information such as:


  • We're pens like these made for military personnel, artists, medical staff at that time, etc?
  • Were these given as an acknowledgement of a notable contribution or because of a special event?
  • Was personalization of pens like these typical back then? 


I'm a complete novice on fountain pens and after hours of research, I couldn't find any leads. I just want to know the story behind it.


I did find some Frans Peeters during that time period: one was a soldier, one was an artist and another one was a Belgian architect. I don't know if the any of them is the Frans Peeters I'm looking for. Perhaps it's best I approach a Dutch govt. body on public records.


Any info would be greatly appreciated 🙏🏻
