13678: unmarked dip pens: sterling silver, beaded decoration, marked only "STERLING"; sold as a pair, though it is noteworthy that even these seemingly identical holders differ slightly, an indication of the hand work still required to finish die-stamped components (one is 16.2 cm long, the other 16.1). These appear to be new old stock, evenly tarnished, with a few very shallow storage bumps.
