Dunhill pen set of Tom Wolfe


 

 There was a large handsome leather-bound desk blotter, a gold Dunhill pen-and-pencil set mounted on an onyx pedestal, a collection of paperweights and medals imbedded in Lucite, several of which had been inscribed to Revered Reginald Bacon by civic organisations, a stack of papers held down by a paperweight consisting mainly of the letters WNBC - TV in thick brass, an intercom with a row of buttons, and a large box-shaped ashtray with leather sides framed in brass and a brass grillwork over the top.

 

Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities, first published 1987.

  1. Oh, it looks so royal! I wish I could have that. I, myself is a big fan of Dunhill pens, I gave them to one of my friends for the reward of giving social media marketing dissertation help to me. I can tell you that he was extremely overjoyed by this – I mean who to blame? They are always of that supreme quality. But I think I am going to get myself something like this as well.
