  • This beautiful stationery set contains all the essentials for trying your hand at calligraphy, and it makes a great gift for correspondence or calligraphy enthusiasts. With a quill and three different nibs, the set includes ivory paper and envelopes, ink, sealing wax, and a seal for securing the letters. It is a wonderful set that is perfect for learning penmanship and keeping alive the tradition of handwriting.

  • In the time of George Washington and the Founding Fathers, superior penmanship was a sign of class and prestige. It was considered an essential skill for those pursuing law, business, or other professional endeavors. The finer the handwriting, the more refined the man, and the more likely he was in a position of authority and influence. Women were rarely taught how to write, and those who were were not educated to the same degree as men.
