Reliable and Trustworthy! Translated from the German writing at the base of this bronze-colored, resin stand, man's best friend, (in this case, a German Shepherd) clutches your trusted writing instrument in its jaws. The faithful German Shepherd also stands for the same qualities that Kaweco embodies in building their writing instruments : loyalty, reliability and strength in character. The stand measures 12" x 7 3/4" x 5GÇ¥ and can accommodate pens of average girth (approximately 0.375GÇ¥ - 0.45GÇ¥ in diameter). Pen is not included in purchase of this stand.
