This is a very hard-to-find antique sterling silver tip souvenir dip pen from Catalina Island, California, a popular resort location off the coast of Los Angeles and San Diego. Check out my other listings for more Catalina and other great items. It is skillfully hand-carved mother of pearl in a fish form, with seaweed.
On the back, in old ornate black ink script is Catalina Island, Cal. No damage to the MOP at all. The pen tip is very dark with normal tarnish from age and is marked "Sterling". It has a section where a pen tip is inserted, no nib included. The box is in poor shape with some tape, pencil writing on the back, felt-like insert included.
Any white, dark or other off-color spots are camera flash or reflection. Please bear in mind that color can vary from monitor to monitor.
