As note earlier in my post Remnants, I’ve returned to scanning photographs from the family photo albums. I came across one of my grandfather’s office when he worked in Sonneberg Germany (about 1927).
Looking more closely at his desktop, after noting the telephone, I saw something else: his pen holder set. The outline is visible in the second image above. After my grandfather retired, he gave the set to my father, who had it in his office for many years, until he retired. It is now on my desk (image 3).
