Shakespeare Gold Fountain Pen
“Behold this fair goblet, Twas carved from the tree,
Which O my sweet Shakespeare, was planted by Thee;
As a relic I kiss it, and bow at the shrine;
What comes from thy hand must be ever divine.”
And on went David Garrick, the famous Shakespearean actor in 1764, for eight more stanzas, comparing all other grades of wood to ‘The Mulberry.’ He speaks, of course, of the famous Mulberry Tree that Shakespeare, himself, planted at his home at Stratford-Upon-Avon, England. Krone has procured a piece of this same tree, and has gracefully embedded it upon the mighty tool of Shakepeare’s trade, the pen.
William Shakespeare is the embodiment of pen and ink. He is the most quotable and most quoted.
Shakespeare is a towering figure of magnificent isolation from our times, lacking virtually and direct material connection to his life. The greatest writer in history, it is said, is but a name. ‘No letter of his writing, no record of his conversation, no character of him drawn with any fullness by a contemporary,: have been extracted by antiquaries from the vast numbers of antiquities which they have sifted through for more than 300 years.
