As I mentioned in my introductory greeting, I've been captivated by (but not done) beautiful lettering for most of my life.  I drooled over handwriting, pored over books.  And paper.  Ooooh paper!   I spent my allowance on stationery.   I got calligraphy kits.  I bought dip pens and even a Murano glass nib holder without even knowing how to use them.  I fell in love with an antique inkwell.  This inkwell.  It is one of my prized possessions.   I don't plan using it for anything more than admiring it.  But if anyone has information on the era, how it was used, etc. I would love to know more.

I've never been on a forum of any type, but I am pretty thrilled to be here.   I've adored calligraphy since I was a kid.  I have a small collection of Scripto and "pretty writing" books that I admired, yet never learned from.  Two weeks ago I took my first calligraphy course (Bianca Mascorro) and just loved it.  I feel somehow more complete.  I look forward to furthering my education.  And the more I learn, the more I admire those people truly skilled in it.
