Dip Pen Holder - ca. early 1900s, clear pressed glass base with pressed dot pattern in base. Holds up to 18 dip pens in it's springy center spring. Sometimes people refer to these as note or memo holders, but they are catalogued as Dip Pen Holders. 4.25 x 2 inches, height to top of spring is 2 1/8 inches.
