A great gift for those who are nostalgic
Love this box. Made of excellent rose wood with even the grain properly aligned. Nice attention to detail. The carry-on strap is definitely worth it. I use this as the home to all my fountain pens.
My writing box arrived in a timely manner and what an experience opening it. The box itself came in a beautiful, reusable heavy duty cardboard box much to decorative to discard! It did arrive with a slight crack In the lid. An imperfection I was disappointed to see in light of the incredible protective packaging it was sent in and it’s price. I have decided to keep the box in spite of the imperfection. The box itself is beautiful, well made and a treasure as is and perfect in every other way. When I open it to remove a pen and the wonderful papers I also purchased I am reminded that life is full of imperfections and many can be reminders that there can be beauty, meaning and lessons to behold behind those imperfections. So for me I have grown to celebrate that fine line flaw. Thank you!!! I love it as well as several other products I have purchased through Galen. Your story is beautiful and inspiring may you and your family be blessed with much success and above all love and peace and beautiful memories.
I am Korean. I ordered from Korea. I got here earlier than I thought. The quality is excellent. It's very strong and of good quality.
저는 한국인 입니다. 한국에서 주문을 시켰습니다. 생각보다 빠른 시간에 왔습니다. 퀄리티가 우수합니다. 매우 튼튼하며 질이 좋습니다.
This gorgeous item arrived much sooner than I expected it to (I'm in Australia) and is everything I hoped for. It even smells wonderful - wood and leather - and the extra goodies included made it feel a like a whole bunch of special gifts, not just one. Thank you - it will be treasured.
It is beautiful workmanship, and I love it. I would definitely order it again!
I am an avid writer and desired something to put my paper and pens in. I have a little satchel to do such but it was not very nice, and my pens were all over the place. I chanced upon this company and took a chance in ordering "The Writing Box." When the item arrived in Hawai'i, a half a world away I found myself marveling at the beauty and quality of the workmanship I had found in this box. I have a place to put my fountain pens and paper and other little items one does need to compose. I had also purchased the leather carrier for the box. I would like to thank the Galen Leather Company for their wonderful workmanship and a high standard of quality you had put in producing such a beautiful item. In Hawai'i, there is a saying, "Mahalo pīha ia ou kou! (Thank you so very much to you all!) for your beautiful work. May you all be blessed!
The writing box is gorgeous! I am so pleased! The wood grain is stunning with smooth rounded edges. Lots of space for storage inside, including documents, pens etc. The craftmanship is out of this world!
Beautifully made, great feel of the wood. Just a great product
