Animal Trio Pen Stand
Click on photos to enlarge
I'm always on the lookout for interesting pen cups, pen holders, pen rests and pen stands to display my own collection of pens. Often, I'm happiest to find something that didn't start out its life designed for one of those purposes! When I came across the item below, I immediately saw the possibilities and whipped out the pen in my pocket (it happened to be a Sheaffer Crest), and eureka!, the Famous Animal Trio Pen Stand was born.
The photos above show the rabbits holding a Sheaffer Legacy 2, while the ducks embrace a Hero Agate Flakes pen in the accompanying plastic tube. Apparently, these tubes are used to measure rainfall if ever placed outdoors, and serve their *real* purpose :-) of keeping a pen standing up straight if so desired. One is included with each stand, and can be used to hold a pen or not (I personally prefer the angled look).
Each version has three of the little critters holding paws/wings...err...appendages in slightly different positions, and all seem to be extremely happy to help in their task.
Constructed of some type of ceramic/clay, they're quite hefty, weighing-in at about 1/2-pound each, which provides for a stable base that resists being accidentally pushed around (the bottom has a velveteen padding which also provides traction and helps prevent marring of the desktop).

Warranties and returns
If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.
Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .
We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
