Woodturned pen

Hathor and White Moth pens and keyrings

We are delighted to be able to offer these ballpoint pens and keyrings made from timber taken from Hathor and White Moth during restoration work. These are hand crafted pens made for us by wood-turner Andrew Bailey of Lowestoft. The pens come in a presentation box with a certificate of authentication, while the keyrings are in plastic envelopes again with a certificate. Because they are handcrafted from old timber they vary slightly in shape and colour and so each one is unique. They would make ideal gifts for anyone interested in wherries.

Pens £16 and keyrings £6, both inc P&P. Unlike other merchandise these are available from John Daynes, 44 Rowan Way, Lowestoft, NR33 8PS. Cheques should be made payable to WYCCT.
