black and yellow mottled ebonite

This material is based upon an uncommon hard rubber used in the 1920s by penmakers Mabie, Todd & Co.  There is a hint of green in the black, adding subtly to the complexity of the pattern.  The figuring is, if anything, more lively and energetic than its vintage inspiration.  One of our favorites!

Both of the photos above are of the same sample piece, shown from different sides, the lower picture closer up.  The picture below is of another sample, just to show the range of patterning.
