A small and thoughtful present for an aspiring writer you know?

Full box of 12 Rob Roy pen nibs, made from bronzed steel, and stored in original box. 

Manufactured by Hinks Wells & Co, Birmingham, in the 1930s. 
Each nib measures 4cm in length and is engraved with the manufacturer’s name. 
Box is 5 x 7 cm. 

There were many hundreds of millions of these bronze or steel pen nibs manufactured between 1840 and the late 1940s. They only started to truly be superceded by fountain pens and ball point pens after WWII, although both had been invented before that. These nibs are in unused condition and are a lovely reminder of times past. Especially for those who write.
