The classic design of our Greek Palmette Pen is based on the popular palmette pattern found on many objects in the Museum's collection including a bucket-shaped vase for wine. The vase presents an appropriately spirited depiction of the wine-god Dionysos driving his griffin-drawn chariot to a gathering of his followers. On the back, Dionysos is seated between a satyr and a maenad and is surrounded by his attributes, including a fawn, a cista (cylindrical box), and wreaths. This ornamental palmette motif, based on the fan-shaped leaves of a palm tree, can be found on the handle of the original vase. Silver overlay. Ballpoint, black ink. Approximately 5''L x 1/2''W.
