    Brooks Patent Writing Kit

    Price:  $130.00

    This reproduction is based upon originals in the John Tobey, John Ockerbloom and Horse Soldier collections. This project started with the most difficult item, which turned out to be the small inkwell, which appears to be particular to this writing kit. The tin tray was no doubt designed with a flat bottom, and dimensionally so that the inkwell would lock in place and slide freely. This reproduction is custom produced, and is made of traditional blown glass. The pewter cap and threads are cast in custom produced molds.

    The checkerboard was reproduced by P. M'Dermott from the example in the John Tobey collection. Mr. Tobey very graciously shared dimensions and details of the checkerboard and surviving stamped cardboard checkers.

    The side piece to the metal tube is die stamped and formed to identically match the originals. The side panels have a slightly convex face, and are painted black to blend with the painted cloth exterior.
