Bronze Seal Pen Stand
retro seal (aluminum?)
This delightful seal would look right at home on a desk in the '30s or '40s. The detail is there, but not extensive.
From its texture and heft, it is hard to believe it is actually aluminum
While nice, the $100 + price seems excessive

Seal's the deal
As a long time collector of bronze Levenger pen stands, I eagerly await each new addition. Recently, however, the stands have not been as much to my taste. Whimsy is fine, but many of the most recent pen stands have not had the quality and artistic elements that have characterized previous Levenger pen stands.
This lovely bronze seal gets back to that artistic elegance, and is actually nicer than pictured. My only complaint is that the hole for the pen is too shallow. The picture on the website shows a pen sitting a bit farther in and held at a good angle. Because the depth of the stand I received, my pen sort of hangs and is easily knocked out. otherwise, it is a lovely stand.
