Not so lazy eye candy time. Here's a fresh shot done today. As part of round two of the Ohio Pen Hoard, I grabbed a couple desk sets in one of the few types I'm willing to buy anytime one is found at reasonable cost. The ovoid ceramic Parker bases from the early 1930s are popular with collectors. Modern organic shape, not the usually blocky thing. Several colors and styles. Article on them was written possibly by Chris Odgers back around 2000. The Hoard in Ohio feature two blues and one green. I'd figured I already had a couple, but that was ok. Turns out I had more than a couple. Here's my whole mini-hoard. The brown-purple one in front is a scarce color.
