Bishop William Badell Sycamore Spire pen and letter opener set

Regular price €125,00

"Bishop Bedell's Tree", this sycamore was planted by him in 1632. Bishop William Bedell (1571) was appointed Provost of Trinity College in 1627 and in 1629 became Bishop of Kilmore and Ardagh. He is essentially most famous for translating the old testament into Irish. He planted the tree in the original garden of the old bishop’s palace which later became part of Kilmore churchyard and when he died in 1642 he was buried beneath this tree. It is believed to be one of the earliest examples of this tree in Ireland. About 20 years ago one of the limbs fell in a storm and its part of that limb we were lucky to receive as a gift in 2015. A very rare and beautiful wood.

We have named this pen because its shape reminds us of the Spire monument in Dublin's city.  A ballpoint pen with a stylus tip in a very high-quality chrome with gold knurled accents. Great gift set for any letter writer who likes the finer things in life. The letter opener will even make opening bills a bit of fun!!

As a personal, corporate or club gift, no other pen set in the world is exactly like yours!

Sustainability is high on everyone’s agenda, by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfill every year.

Give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump and the only thing you don't use is the empty glass ink bottle that is recycled, how green is that!
