Who makes these?

I hold the writing desk and it's ephemera in special esteem. Some pics of my desk that I had on Imageshack already... Other things aren't pictured: a few books, of philosophy, mathematics, and literature, my chess knight desk lamp. There are drawers for my Crane's notepaper and ink for the dip pens, as well as a drawer for drafting tools, a micrometer and calipers, a drawer for common and pedstrian writing implements, staplers and such, and a few drawers for items from my collection. And of course a pendeflex drawer -- all on full extension roller slides.

I use this to hold paper clips. My wife bought it for me. I sometimes get thirsty looking at it.

It's a '50s Hermes set.

I love desk accessories from the '60s and '70s in lucite, chrome, and/or cork. Even though I do not smoke (cigarettes), I used to collect modern designer ashtrays from the period; they often do not immediately look like ashtrays and work perfectly as catch-alls for paper clips, candies, etc.

I also have a bit of a fetish for desktop miniatures. My desk holds mini models of my current favorite vintage car (Maserati Merak) and high-rise building (Hancock Center in Chicago).

Cute I like it. Any info on where she purchased this bucket?

I like writing sets with ink bottles but in Lucite or marble/malachite or any semi precious stone. I do not like textured leather look of that ink set, it looks tacky in a very Indiana Jones way.

Why the jackass rig with the revolver?

She got it in London at an antique shop.

Sometimes the best ideas come from unusual places and improvisation.

Cork is a very intriguing material but I don't see a lot of desk items made in cork except some pen-holders, and the like. I'd like a blotter in cork, with chrome edging. I'm also particularly fond of assorted boxes--from traditional molded leather to modernistic ones and sterling ones. You can stack them up, and stuff things into them without sacrificing style. Desktop miniatures are also fascinating; I like the aluminum airplane models that airline executives used to keep on a teak credenza or something.

It's an alligator skin, I believe.
