Pencil holder

[Photograph by Michael Leddy.]

I had a birthday a few days ago. Elaine gave me the ebony object above. We don’t know if it began its life holding pencils (perhaps dip pens?), but it’s holding pencils now. This pencil is a mid-century Eagle Turquoise, from an Eagle display case. Mid-century, c’est moi.

Thank you, Elaine.

i would have assumed toothbrush holder at first...but the holes do not look quite large enough.

Thanks, Gunther.

Mark, yes, I think the holes are too small. Would ebony be okay around water?
