Italy - 1980-1989 - Brass, Plastic, Steel

Beautiful pen holder/pencil holder made by Guanziroli in the 1980s designed by E. Franchi.

Still has original metal tag with the brand name and designer's signature.

In very good aesthetic condition, although it does have normal signs of wear and is discoloured in a few small places.
